A NEW CITY STAGE
BITPARK is intended to serve as a symbol and stage for the new identity of the city. Placed in the harbour, it embodies the contemporary aspirations of the city and its renewed connection to the water.
When the activities of the city are over the space is returned to the water. Residents of the city can have allotment gardens for growing fresh produce and hosting private functions on the water.
The inclusion of climate screens and terrain plug-ins make a variety of temperature regulated environments possible. A tropical bath in the heart of a Scandinavian harbour is not out of the question.
A MOVIE NIGHT ON THE WATER
New life can be brought to the harbour side with the staging of events, concerts, theatre performances, and cinema.
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.
Bustling markets can take place on the water with fresh seafood served straight from the harbour
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!
