Life: Propagated

Just as humans accelerated existential change to our world’s ecosystem, our project hopes to accelerate the regrowth of life, propagating and creating a symbiosis between humans and nature. We are taking a stance of welcoming the entropic process as part of the natural cycle of life, which creates a constantly changing and emerging new nature. “Life: Propagated” will act as a substrate which allows organisms to live, grow, and exist in its reemerging life sustaining environment.

The quarry is quietly alive, growing, flooding, constantly changing, and flora and fauna species slowly adapt with the water level change and propagate to higher ground as time goes by. Our approach is to reorganize, redistribute, and reconfigure these existing resources on the site. By carving in and building around, we aim to reorganize new negative spaces for humans and species to inhabit, interact and observe.

By embracing nature to reclaim the land, we hope that our project can be a model where humans and nature can live in symbiosis, and where significant change in our mindset can be implemented, away from human centric design but towards a life centric design.
