Orientation of buildings so that they are perpendicular to the slope of the site not only facilitates an optimal siting for passive cooling and heating, but also S. 19th St. provides an opportunity to explore the geomorphology of a Puget Sound bluff particularly with respect to soil movement and erosion. In a sense, architecture venue becomes geology. The line between the natural world and built environment nue Ave becomes blurred, especially in the realm of open space. Transitional spaces son A Fawcett from terrace to terrace become abstract representations of bluff erosion Jeffer morphologies. The vegetative palette in these spaces is purely regional in nature. This native palette is juxtaposed to the identity-driven planting palette of the venue campus terraces. Essentially the plan is comprised of a bluff with native flora Pacific A that has been overlayed with the urban fabric of Tacoma represented by a global
