Clean Slate

Point Reyes, California


On the coast of California lies a small town, Point Reyes. Not very populated, but popular with tourists. Point Reyes was hit with a major earthquake measuring a level of 8.5. beating the record of 7.9 in Fort Tejan. The town didn't know what was to come, but when all hope was lost, the mayor said, " We wil grow back greener". This is what gave Point Reyes, a clean slate

Before and After

Before, the houses were made from brick and wood and concrete, now to reduce damage caused by earthquakes, they are using Base Isolation. Which is pretty much making the structure "float" above the foundation using, lots of springs and bearings.
