ADAPTIVE SYSTEM

Sea Ranch was developed to bring people into an environment with minimal impact to the land. Climate and ecological factors directed the plan and the architecture. Joseph EshrickÕs Hedgerow Houses which were tucked into a windbreak, demonstrate an adaptive architecture, taking a shape informed by the land and the wind.
