    As a former student of Mr. Poss, it’s refreshing to remember that there are actually a few understated professors of architecture who are as good as teachers as they are as professional architects. Great to see his work reaching a wider audience.

    Looks like it is in a flood plane as well. Suspect that the use of pilons rather than foundation helped the case by keeping the footprint very small, as well as lifting the structure above the flood plane. The structure does not divert water or prevent natural flow. Bridges are constructed across wetlands using this method frequently, and many nature boardwalks around wetlands use the same approach. Suspect there is no plumbing, so no waste water issues. Can you tell?

    I can’t help but wonder how he got a Clean Water Act § 404 permit to build that right in the middle of a sensitive wetland.
