The mission of Save the Bay is to create a safe environment in which to educate Houston’s school children and visitors about the value of healthy ecosystems in Galveston Bay. The site strategy for the campus begins with the bifurcation of the site into an experimental zone where water from the Buffalo Bayou will be treated before it passes into the second operational zone where students and visitors safely interact with clean water, vegetation and wildlife. The campus is centrally organized, concentrating program at the intersection of the experimental and operations zones. Sediment dredged from the adjacent Houston shipping channel is used to construct landforms that elevate the campus above the 500 year flood elevation. Dredge material is also utilized to create a resilient marsh plain that migrates to higher elevations in response to rising sea levels. The purposeful hyper concentration of educational program and habitat creation depicts Save the Bay’s mission to educate constituents and improve ecological health of the bay in a singular moment.
