The wild waves whist,
Foot it featly here and there;
— William Shakespeare “Ariel’s Song”
The project is done with AAVS ‘Ring of Fire’, a 10-day workshop based in Tokyo. The workshop aims to explore innovative design systems and strategies that can feed, tackle and/or question the way in which architecture is responding to the impact of natural disasters over populated areas surrounding the Pacific Ocean’s Ring of Fire.
