‘Sea Our Land’ shortlisted for the Jacques Rougerie International Competition

Assistant Professor El Hadi Jazairy‘s project “Sea Our Land” was shortlisted by the Jacques Rougerie Foundation in the Sea Level Rise category among 1749 applications. 

“Sea Our Land” is a city for a changing world. It is a prototype urban structure that addresses physical and social needs in view of the growing challenges of climate change in a heavily urbanized South Asian context. It is a floating structure moored to a linear backbone of shelters on piles, a structure that adapts to the tidal changes and varying water levels, making it invulnerable to flooding, storms and sea level changes. It is designed to use renewable energy, harvest hydroponic vegetables and rainwater, and to encompass aquaculture. The design team on the project includes Jia Weng (M.U.D.‘13), Shuqi He (M.U.D.‘13), Jia Fang (M.U.P.’14), Chen Lu (M.U.D.’14), Cheng Xing (M.L.A.’14).
