1. Doersch, Krista. Pier Pressure: Addressing Ecological Opportunities of Nearshore Infrastructure in Lake Washington’s Union Bay.

Degree: 2021, University of Washington

Along much of Seattle’s freshwater shorelines, seemingly isolated problems like erosion and shading are compounded and repeated by docks, piers, and houseboats. This results in a much bigger ecological problem: the erasure of the critical nearshore habitat that supports all life in the lake. What innovations in nearshore infrastructure design can provide multifunctional benefits for people and the environment? This design thesis considers the existing conditions of five representative zones along the University of Washington’s waterfront. Insights from restoration ecologists, engineers, local experts, and trends in aquatic infrastructure inform the design of this urban site. Pier Pressure proposes holistic solutions through a systems approach that enhances built interventions through ecological design. Advisors/Committee Members: Rottle, Nancy (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: aquatic recreation; ecological design; nearshore lake habitat; overwater structures; shoreline armoring; UW waterfront; Landscape architecture; Landscape architecture
