Anna McCuan and Jamieson Pye, juniors in the Bachelor of Science in Architecture program, were shortlisted this summer for their submission in the Land Art Generator Design Competition for Melbourne, Australia. Their project titled, “Sentinel: Marking Energetic Flows Through Time” is a “design that gives back, while also bringing pause for reflection.”
As noted in McCuan and Pye’s artistic narrative, “Sentinel optimizes the livability of the site at each point in time while offering solutions for its long-term survival amid environmental threats, particularly flooding, caused by torrential rainfall, long term sea-level rise, and rising ambient temperatures.”
Frederick Pearsall, senior lecturer in the School of Architecture and McCuan and Pye’s mentor for this project, encouraged the students to research and explore everything there is to know about Melbourne’s culture, history, and geography, which lead McCuan and Pye to better understand the City of Port Phillip’s drought and flooding challenges.
