We have surpassed the point of irreparable damage to our planet.
At this point, several scientists confirm that ecological balance may only be
achieved by artificial means.
proposes a mega-structural territorial scale and envisions
radical modus-operandi to striate the entire territory of the Jamaica Bay, connecting
the expansion for JFK airport in the metropolitan
area of New York City by structuring the
natural growth of the bay wetlands eroding system. A field of inflatable buoys initiates a machinic
responsive process affecting the environmental balance of the water bay promoting side effects that alter
the dynamic stability of this natural ecosystem.
These elements are implemented initially to slow
down the water flow, promoting latent banks inducing
sedimentation, boosting multiple diverse ecological
environments and developing multiple programmatic
opportunities in different landscape scales. Once
they activate the sedimentation process, they become
progressively fixed and then are disposed.
affects environmental dynamic forces, structured positively, using such
instability to induce latent landscape opportunities, in an artificial ecology
of natural feedback exchanging information and energy.
