We are now in the year 2052 which is the tipping point of the climate crisis. This year we reached some common ideas about giving back the land to nature to really recognise that the “Disasters” we called are just a cycle of nature and “Barriers” shouldn’t be the only solution that keeps us safe.
DF lab is focusing on the East Sussex flooding situation. Our lab invented “W-floor” prototypes that can be suited to different space usage conditions that may be affected by the flood. Our design aims to promote a more resilient and sustainable approach to flood management by allowing floodwater to pass through interior spaces, rather than blocking its pathway with closed doors. Our goal is to create a self-sustainable housing solution that enables people to stay in their homes during floods, reducing the need for costly and disruptive evacuations to shelters or other locations.
