Interesting project by Daniel Fernández Pascual:

“Modelled after a real-life ongoing raffle to win a house in the microstate of Andorra, held with the aim of liberating its current homeowners from an overwhelming debt, The Housing Act explores crowdsourcing as a relief strategy to finance the debt of households”.

There are more projects on his website that may be relevant to some of you…

See you tomorrow,

Nannette and Ricardo,

Recalling on what the jurors has told me on Monday I focused on the idea of ‘Terraforma’ as it has been something very important in my concept previously, which got a little bit lost later and I thought that if I manage to bring the idea back I would break from using the fishing village and tsunami as the only components that define my project. Therefore, I have done research into various ways of terraforming and by especially focusing on looking at more ‘permanent’ and more ‘fixed’ techniques. I also wanted to push myself to work on showing my research as that has been a problem.

In the first sheet, I am looking at various terraforming techniques from across cultures and times. I always pin point key concepts from each one. Then the other two sheets are focusing on permanent vs temporary (man-made vs nature made) terraforming where first is using a large platform structure such as the oil drilling platforms and the second if a mangrove forest which are placed in the beginning of beaches. I found the idea of mangrove forest from my research into tsunami prevention. It has a lot of environmental advantages – strengthens soil, improvements ecosystem, traps carbon.

Need to do sketches on the progressed design but I imagine it now more as a bridge from the sea (where the village would be) to the train station. So I would have several specific moments in my design: village on water, bridge, market underneath, connection to train station.

thank you
