“Water is the principle feature of the prime harbour-front land that is “The Bays Precinct”, which historically dominated much more of the foreshore before landfill operations for port facilities took place in the 1900s. Our design poses the question of, what if the harbour re-claimed some of this land? How could that inform our design? How could we weave water back into the site, and how could this water be activated?
Aqueous Living proposes an urban typology where water enters the city and the city extends into the water. The juxtaposition of the natural and the artificial, production and recreation, land and water creates a unique, layered urban landscape.”
