Architectural design team eric schuldenfrei and marisa yiu of eskyiu have developed a conceptual habitat and a corresponding model known as ‘aqua industry’ for the hong kong & shenzhen bi-city biennale of urbanism and architecture. currently at the kowloon park the installation is an abstraction of a possible habitat, promoting water based industries, fishing communities and diversity. to merge into its surroundings, the organic form is a response to the aquatic plants and fishing reefs, enhancing the nature, light,
water and temperature.
the life aquatic habitats are a demonstration of social sustainability and mixed used living, where leisure and work strategies are combined into an integrated structure. by choosing culturally specific sites, it allows for the communities to become a part of the urban fabric of the city. the installation will be on display until april 23rd, 2012.
