Fluid Strata: Butterfly Effect


The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL

MLA Studio 1

Tutors: Ana Abram & Maj Plemenitas

Individual Work

“The project is inspired by the urgent need for resilient landscape systems which can be introduced into the urban environment to mitigate unpredicted tidal and storm surges. The city of London is directly linked to the North Sea, which is known for high intertidal currents carrying large bodies of water towards the Thames's Estuary and right into the gates of the "Thames Barrier". As our planet is experiencing extensive weather instabilities and an accelerating sea-level rise, the project proposes a speculative approach to how urban flooding can be mitigated by activating the Deep Ground's ever-changing ecosystem dynamics. The landscape deploys the existence of London’s Hidden Rivers as core agents of a flood-responsive organism.”
