This project suggests an infrastructural and spatial approach to potential future pipeline oil spills in the Kitimat region of British Columbia where a new pipeline and marine port are planned on being built.
Oil will enter the pipeline in Alberta at approximately 62°. As the oil travels across BC, it will be reheated to maintain viscosity, resulting in a final temperature between 10-30° by the time the oil reaches Kitimat.
As energy costs rise in the future, Kitimat residents could leave the suburbs to densify along the new pipeline route. This project suggest how a central community space might opportunistically harness passive heat along the pipeline, while protecting the town from oil spills.
