Palimpsest

This project challenged us to think about the city as a “palimpsest” and use this conceptual framework to redesign the area around the Downtown Berkeley BART Station. In the face of deconstruction and reconstruction, what is worth preserving? How can physical interventions help create a sense of place by highlighting, obscuring, layering, celebrating, or revealing?
