A multi-award winning MArch in Architecture Thesis Project
Images and text by Carl Raymond Harper -
The project is sited in the estuary of the River Tees, located in and on the liminal landscape of eyots formed in the wake of container ships using the Teesmouth port.
The principle facility is an augmented form that rises from Silt Island as two sheer walls, with a different programme contained within each of the walls. The outer elevation of the eastern wall is covered in seaweed, and changes its appearance due to the changing seasons and the particular stage of the drying process. The building receives sea resources into a series of multiple cradle to cradle processes to the point where waste is removed.
