EARTHPILES: BUNKER HILL
The iconic Bunker Hill in Los Angeles has undergone several land transformations, most notably in the years 1850,1970, 2000, and throughout its short history. Due to these topographic changes and its unstable grounds on top of a liquefaction zone, this area is susceptible to damage in the event of an earthquake.
A new typology of shells and piles compose a new construction method for reassembling disaster debris, where rubble gets recycled and reconfigured into a new foundation for postdisaster urban life. Bunker Hill is a prototype for new architecture throughout the rebuild of Los Angeles after 2050.
