Presentation Order


  • Vulnerability of site and its continual state of change
  • State of impending disappearance – flooding

Through temporality, water and flooding I look to explore the relationship between land and water and their continual battle for dominance.


  • Shintoism – temporality ” lurks the mystery of time”
  • Ambiguous water/land edge.


  • Changing attitudes – preventative to adaptive (Neo-Dutch approach)
  •  Cyclical process of flood water – ”Build with nature, live with water”.


  • Adaptive response to designing with water
  • Inspired by physiology of boats


  • Poles (Electricity/telephone cables/materials/dimensions…) acting as links to the land, as well as tying it to the rest of the UK.
  • Light house – key community connection point? Look out points, points of reflection- inextricably connected to boundary between land and water. Act as large scale tethering poles…

Urban Dungeness

  • Water markers – what’s flooded, what floats…
  • Changing the norm – flooded Dungeness urban landscape. Just as the water/land edge acts to define each other’s existence, so does flooded/non-flooded state of Dungeness. Both highlight the qualities of the other. They live continually alongside each other…

Dungeness as Flood Lab

  • Development of an interactive, collaborative workshop laboratory for flood responsive amphibious designs. Dungeness becomes both a active site for learning amphibious philosophies and construction methodologies, and in turn continual new research that feeds back into the next design. Just as the cycle of flooding is cyclical, so is the process of the Dungeness Flood Lab.
  • Amphibious design Guide Book: How to build your own Amphibious House.


One thought on “Presentation Order

  1. Hi Anna

    This looks like a sensible structure, make sure you time it to fit into the ten minutes – and plan it so that every point is demonstrated through work presented to the critics.

    You begin with the ‘problem’ of the site and the way that you have approached a reading of it, but it would be good to follow this with a brief indication of the proposal (Dungeness a Flood Lab) so that everyone is clear what your project is and where the presentation is going. You can then elaborate on the proposal when you get to the final segment, as you have indicated.

    You have some really beautiful work so give thought to details such as the paper it is on. It may be that you just present a few things to a higher final standard (due to cost etc), but indicate the kinds of consideration you are giving to the presentation of the work materially.
