The ongoing increase in global average temperature effects on Earth’s climate system result significant rises of global sea water level. The pacific islands for instant, had suffered from losing their homeland, food sources and their precious home specifically the aborigines on the Soloman Islands.
“Aqua Clique” is a shelter that can sustain the impact of global warming. The structure is floating on the sea to withstand the rising sea level, the valuable fresh water is collected from the roof and the manual extension canvas, which will be stored for human consumption. Solar panels covered most of the roof to provide essential electricity as well as reducing interior heat gain. There is also structure of man-made reefs that is designed to nourish new underwater ecosystem and create sustainable food sources. The house and cabinets are all modular to ease the transportation and lower the construction cost. The layout in the other hand is inspired by “Kabang”. “Kabang” is a houseboat that the Moken lives for generations on the sea. Finally, “Aqua Clique” can benefit globally to sinking areas, crowded cities and vulnerable ecosystem.
We take granted from safe, warm, comfortable home, but for some, it is a luxury.
