sea change 2030

The Sea Change 2030+ organised by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects was an ideas competition, intentionally ‘open’ for any type of landscape / seascape proposal for the Sydney Harbour responding to global climate change and sea level rise.

The solution offered by me and talented graphic designer Kamila Matla was a floating bio-remediation island linked to form modular archipelagos.

The multi-functional structure contains shellfish lines for sewage absorbtion and carbon sequestration, artificial reef habitat, intertidal mud banks with options for a nesting beach, sun bathing beach or mangrove plantation.

This solution offers a short-term staging post for displaced populations until sea levels stabilise and natural / semi natural landforms and habitats evolve.

Considering we were a two person team and the top three teams contained an average of ten people, we were very pleased to be one of five projects featured on the AILA’s web page.

This submission was undertaken whilst at Belt Collins International Hong Kong Ltd. I co-ordinated the graphic presentation, conceived the photomontages and proposed the planting palettes as part of the three person team. We received a Diploma for reaching second place (out of over 150 entries), an illustrated write-up in a publication dedicated to the International Design Competition, as well as television coverage in Poland.
