This project examines the relationship between Ravenna Creek and a new composting facility in Urban Seattle. By returning Ravenna Creek to an ecologically centered flow pattern, the interaction between the water + compost creates zones that address the composting process, outdoor education, and stormwater management strategies for the University of Washington and surrounding neighborhoods. As compost is produced, these zones develop into a mounded landscape that frames a productive riparian habitat that is valuable for the native ecosystem and an amenity to visitors.
