Part 2 Project 2023

Tidal Guardian is an innovative architectural proposal that harmonises nature’s resilience with human ingenuity. This coastal erosion defence system combines robust architectural form with sustainable seaweed farming techniques. By strategically integrating seaweed cultivation along the shoreline, Tidal Guardian not only safeguards the vulnerable coast but also harnesses the seaweed as a renewable resource for bioelectricity manufacturing.

The intertwining of coastal protection and eco-friendly energy production forms a symbiotic relationship, where the defence system fortifies against erosion while embracing the power of nature to generate clean, sustainable electricity. Tidal Guardian stands as a testament to our commitment to preserving the coastal ecosystem while embracing the potential of renewable energy.
