Staying in Place: Mt Baker Hub Studio

Rain and Water Resilience

Rachel Wells

M. Landscape Architecture

Mt. Baker is a diverse neighborhood, situated on the liquefaction zone of Rainier Valley. Aging infrastructure, budget constraints, and new knowledge of seismic risks show that Mt. Baker needs to diversify its resources. This project focuses on making drinking water resources more resilient. This project supplements the built capital of water mainlines with additional water resources, adds emergency preparedness to the area’s social capital, and uses environment tools to add resiliency to utilities and natural resources.
