Estuary Channel Project
Spring 2006: The artist-team, Lewis deSoto/John Roloff, have
been selected to work with The City of Oakland, Sasaki Associates,
Rajappan and Meyer Consulting Engineers for the Measure DD:
Lake Merritt - Oakland Estuary Channel Project Design Team. The project revived in 2018 now only has team member, John Roloff, as the principal designer/artist who will be revisiting the earlier concepts and design to propose a new Phase V project for the 10th St. bridge or adjacent area.
Lake Merritt-Oakland Esturary Channel connects Oakland's Lake
with the Oakland
Esturary and flows through the campus of Laney College. The Oakland
Esturary is bounded by the shorelines of the City of Oakland
and the Island of Alameda on the eastern
of San Francisco
Channel's water, animated by tide, climate and hydrologic control,
is a changing mixture of
water and fresh water collected from the streams of the Oakland/Berkeley
hills that flow into Lake Merritt.
