Urban Aquifer

Ian Rodgers, Xinwen Zhang, Jenny Zhou

Urban Aquifer is a fortification proposal in which we assume that the water tables have risen and as a result massing will be elevated through a new foundation system so new methods of collecting water supply is necessary. The proposal is a timestamp on the development of an artificial ground which utilizes its constructed topography to channel and capture seawater and freshwater. This new foundation is the basis which forms and unifies the organization of the other systems through its contour lines. As a result, the relationship between natural and engineered landscape becomes ambiguous.
