Identify and analyse the topographic condition you would like to work with in response to the brief (eg: land that becomes an island, land/water edge, open water).


Through models, physical and digital, develop ways of dealing with unpredictable water levels to propose a structure for shelter, be it attached to land and responsive or amphibious or buoyant…


To stimulate quick design responses for scenarios which require adaptable solutions.


Employ architects’ ability to solve complex problems to offer solutions for extreme situations (non-site specific solutions with site specific knowledge, skills, materials).
