amphibious aquacultural seascape unit, yeosu, south korea

Prize winning scheme for the 2012 Expo. Our response to pressing environmental issues, rising sea levels and growing populations was to ask ‘how can man find new ways to settle along coastlines and how can he build sustainable and self-sufficient  communities?’  The pavilion forms the hub of a new floating network : the Amphibious Aquacultural Seascape Unit which sits in the bay, connected to the breakwaters by a network of walkways and floating fields. This network supports a self-sufficient cycle of production of fish, food and biomass for the production of energy. This model is capable of sustaining small communities across the globe and can be deployed in areas prone to flooding.
