Project name: Amphibious Living
Landscape Projects were awarded 1st prize in the Amphibious Living competition.
The brief requested an exploration of the potential for living in or on water related landscapes. The proposal, situated in areas of cyclical flooding, envisages dry islands (Filter-Havens) located just offshore from the commercial strip, to which people will migrate during the winter floods, to connect their house boats (Life Craft) to the reed bed water filters and communal facilities of the Causeway.
In time, after a few seasons, the Havens will begin to develop their own character, as creative people leave traces of their craft on the islands, and a mythology of migration will build anticipation and excitement into an increasingly dynamic new society.
