Competition Entry: Foundation Jacques Rougerie's Innovation and Architecture for the Sea
Design in collaboration with
Reinterpreting an infrastructure landscape into a place-less, scale-less condition to create an immediate relationship between people and the sea.
The infrastructure landscape, such as a highway system, responds directly to the context of an urban fabrication. The
context of place shapes this landscape and remains a static reference point of its inhabitants, creating familiarity in moving from one point to another.
Loop is about a scale-less landscape existing in a place-less condition. One has no prejudice of their context, creating a strong desire to understand the surrounding: the sea.
Physical interaction within each loop generates an intuitive understanding of the sea and different phenomenal experiences through different senses: sight, hearing, smell, and touch.
The inner parameter of each loop consists of controlled ecosystems that are used for scientific studies.
