“Multispecies Neighborhoods in Urban Sea Areas,” concerns the interface between art, marine ecology, landscape architecture, and urban development. The explorative action research is motivated from a need to act, and to help people discover a hitherto invisible landscape: creating awareness of its spatial qualities, colours, the smell of low tide and the myriad of lifeforms within this symbiosis of sea and shore. The aim is to expand the horizon of those building into this watery world. With a desire to co-create diverse and liveable urban bluescapes, the work has emerged in- and through a state of wonder.
