Silverlake Reservoir Design Revision


Ken McCown, Kevin Hinders, Andy Wilcox and a handfull of students at Cal Poly(architecture and landscape architecture) took to producing a vision plan for the reuse of Silver Lake Reservoir in Los Angeles. Here’s a flickr photo set with their plans and full breakdown of the idea. “Instead of using the Colorado River and the California Aqueduct, this scheme uses the Los Angeles River water to keep the reservoir filled as it is being taken off line from the department of water and power. A ring canal cleans the water coming in from the river. Underground area beneath the new reservoir stores the water for use in the city delivery system.” [Thanks Tyler]
