TetraPOT - Green Sea Defence Redesign（永續性綠色消波塊設計）
70 票 VOTE
消坡塊佔據沿海地區與國家（海南島、崇明島、馬來西亞、日本、台灣）美麗的海岸線並破壞自然景觀讓人們對沙灘與海水間產生隔閡。自然界的消坡塊 - 紅樹林也因溫室效應、水平面上升，造成約35%幼苗夭折。源於這些挑戰，我們發現設計機會點：是否能創造出共生體系，讓人工消波塊與自然界消坡塊（紅樹林）合而為一、互利共生？
It started with a vision to create a stronger yet greener sea defence. Since we were in kid’s age, we have been wondering what these concrete blocks are and why these artificial sea defences occupy almost all beaches. Current artificial sea defence structures tend to be dislodged over time by the force of the ocean constantly crashing against them. They have also been criticized for destroying the natural scenery along coastlines. As for natural sea defence, more than 35% of the world’s mangroves are already gone because of the greenhouse effect. We not only identified challenges that people need to face but also found design opportunities that the project team will going to focus on, e.g. Under mutual benefit/value theme, we will create symbiosis between artificial sea defence and natural sea defence.
TetraPOT is a sea defence sustainable system. Distributed TetraPOTs along coastlines will eventually interlock to create a long-lasting sea defence of growing trees and roots that help keep the blocks in place. The roots will intertwine and gradually become a natural sea defence. The shape and placement will enable TetraPOTs to interlock with each other and form a structured web. The design not only prevents soil erosion, but also helps to protect and create a natural habitat. It’s not only a defence, but also an ecosystem. A home for other livings.
