INHABITING THE HARBOUR
ISLANDS OF ACTIVITY:
Inspiring interest, curiosity and water activation for both, recreation and aquatic urban farming.
Engages with the water by jetting out into it, while creating a dialogue between city and water.
The boundaries between city and water can be re-defined, merged and reprogrammed to serve as productive, social and environmentally responsive spaces in the city
Links may be established connecting parts of the city that before were separate in a new and innovative way.
A flexible public space designed to stage the diverse activities of the city. Linked to the harbour side it serves as a gateway to engage with the waters in and around the city.
CRAFT YOUR SPACE
THE CLEAN TEAM
1 A SMALL BIG CONTRIBUTION
These little guys filter out BIG volumes of of water that may be a potential threat to other organisms; such as excess nitrogen, a silent killer that is a by-product of sewage and industrial run-off.
2 40-50 GALLONS A DAY!
A typical market size oyster (3" from the longest dimension) filters about 40-50 gallons of water per DAY!
OUR OYSTER YIELD
1 ONE MODULE OYSTER YIELD
With an average vertical growing distance (water column) of 4 meters:
1 platform (2.5 M x 2.5 m) = 1350 kg yield = roughly 20,000 oysters
1 super structure (9 platforms) = 12,150 kg yield = 180,000 oysters
2 ONE MILLION OYSTERS
With only 5.5 superstructures we get 1,000,000 oysters!!!
1,000,000 A YEAR...
Central Park can take roughly about 4000 Olympic size pools, this means that in one year, ONE MILLION oysters will have cleaned an area 7 times the size of Central Park!
ONE MILLION OYSTERS A YEAR
In one YEAR these little guys will have filtered more than 18 BILLION gallons of water, equivalent to almost 28,000 Olympic size pools!
