ADAPTIVE RESPONSE

The incorporation of learned strategies in answer to apocalyptic level events

This project carries on the design strategy from Analogue Computation and Dynamic Coercion to provide safety and longevity for its inhabitants. The response of the resulting design not only provides spaces for habitation, but elements that directly interact with their environment to provide essentials such as power, oxygen, light, and outdoor spaces. Work from all three projects were collected and presented in a poster called Ready Or Not.

This piece of architecture responds to an extreme flooding situation, where an inhabited stretch of land becomes the sea floor. The resulting design is synonymous with the original biotype  because it manages to harness the movement of external forces. This idea of movement allows it to adapt its form and respond to its environment.
