Tidal Living

The lower level of the shelters will flood each day with the high tides. The tidal pools will serve the dual purpose of biomimicry and learning to live with water under your feet. The learning platforms are tethered to a central floating platform for gathering in larger groups and exchanging discoveries. Annually a celebration occurs on the central platform adding links to account for sea level rise. The screw holes that anchor the housing/learning units mark the sea level rise over time.
