That sea forever starting and re-starting
Paul Valery, The Graveyard By The Sea (1920)

The Sea is home to nomadic populations of humans and animals; a millennial stage for exploration, a source of food and life– and a contested space. While the seamless sea and the boundless skies deceive us as infinite spaces, they are submitted to international laws, social, political, and economic dynamics, along with the intrinsic laws of nature.
Migrant Journal, No.3 – Flowing Grounds | Papercut (2017)

Historically, the North Sea has been a contested territory. While bordering the mainland Europe it has been often turned into a platform for geopolitical affairs with the UK as well as the Nordic countries. Such strategic role has manifested itself in various military, religious, economic, and social ties and divides, which has consequently made the North Sea a confliction common ground. The ongoing refugee crisis or the Brexit are only very recent examples of such a long history. As a result, the sea is not seen anymore a periphery of Europe but rather a central territory and a point of departure through which the idea of Europe would be defined or challenged. Therefore, in the North Sea: Landscapes of Coexistence Studio we celebrated these controversial aspects of the sea, not anymore as an extra-territorial space and a limit to the land, but rather as the main point an autonomous entity through which the political, environmental, economic and societal questions could be addressed. In this way any spatial proposition, whether landscape, urban or architectural, was challenged and revisited through the lens of the North Sea as a referenced territory for new spatial interventions. Students were encouraged to redefine the role of the territory of the sea and particularly its land borders/ coastal cities, addressing the complex, yet not so visible, spatial, juridical, environmental and geopolitical natures of the North Sea for the design of spatial interventions that are informed by climate adaptation and clean energy futures.

The exhibition displays the outcomes of a year-long research design graduation studio on the North Sea as Landscapes of Coexistence, focusing on its transitional spaces, infrastructure, and power.

Lets Talk About Water Film Festival – Masterclass / Water Micro-Movie Festival 2018

This week Delta Interventions Studio ‘North-Sea: Landscapes of Coexistence’ is hosting the Master-Class “Between Water and Land: a look at thresholds” under the framework of Let’s Talk About Water Movie Festival (see program).

During the Master-Class, graduate students of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urbanism at TU Delft (Delta Interventions Studio and Flowscapes Studio) will be working on the theme of thresholds. As A. Mathur and prof. D. da Cunha (both professors at University of Pennsylvania) state: “… flood is only the condition if the water crosses the line which was drawn, if there is no line there are no floods.”  This intensive program is structured into two parts: a series of selected lectures on narration and media strategies in project communication and a Workshop where students will learn how to script and build a storyline to convey the essence of their project. As a final product, each student is expected to develop a micro-movie to deepen the investigation on the theme.

The movies will be screened on Friday 9th February (15:00 – 17:00) to an expert panel and the public, during our second ‘Water Micro-Movie Festival Awards’ at TU Delft Library: ‘The Orange Room’.
