Living grounds. Generating Intelligent Environments

22_Living grounds

Living grounds has been awarded the Special Mention (2nd prize) at the 2014 Jacques Rougerie Competition on the theme: Architecture and sea level rise. It is the collaborative effort of the TarTar team.

SYNOPSIS

Living Grounds addresses the global issue of sea level rise by using the latest scientific discoveries in the fields of artificial intelligence and synthetic biology. It uses an intelligent cooperative system connecting large amounts of digital data and living building organisms to create new territories for cities. The DATA offers a synthesis of variations in sea level, precise samples of the planet’s topography, a picture of the maritime flora and fauna, collected and analysed by an artificial intelligence (A.I.). The A.I. processes the data over time and pilots the living bactero-coral growth to create artificial grounds where human life is possible. Beyond its concrete application, Living Grounds offers governments, researchers, and communities worldwide the opportunity to collaborate and integrate their preoccupations in a global context. It is an opportunity to change the way we live and to live together at a local and planetary scale while reconciling humans and their environment.
