completed during the AQA Aquatic Architecture Studio led by Andrés Jaque @andres_jaque
This studio invents [and tests] architectures to operate in the growing and problematic boundary between the oceanic and the earthly—aquatic, architectures where air-based beings will negotiate with salt-water-based beings for coexistence. If Coney Island, NY was the prototype of the coastal line at a time of unlimited resources exploding metropolitan domains, and if Elizabeth Harbor, NJ was the prototype of the-ocean-seen-as-a-source-of-globalized means, then this studio asks: What is the architectural vernacular of the post-Anthropocene age? Studio travel included a research trip to Iceland.
