While the earth’s human populations grow exponentially, scientists have been documenting an opposite trajectory with many non-human species. Affecting not only the environment, but all of us living in it. This has created new and challenging tasks for architects to propose new modes of co-existence and more sustainable ways of living together with other species, who we share the world with.
This project aims to tell a story about human and environmental healing through the establishment of nature reinforcing architecture.
The intention is to create a safe, quiet and secluded sanctuary situated on the sea. Investigating the benefits of the sea in relation to human health by offering a retreat in solitude for people to promote and inspire personal renewal, while at the same time exploring the potentials of the sea, as a place to envision an alternative strategy for human adaptation to ecological change. One that both depends on and supports the health and diversity of non-human marine species.
