Dross:Strata – accepts the idea that the next rapid growth phase of the adaptive cycle will create socioeconomic and cultural densification on the higher terrain. Therefore what uses will be appropriate to be included within the fluid terrain to avoid it becoming defunct? This concept suggests a need to visualise and seize design opportunities that can manifest themselves on new (previously wasted) layers not only above the fluid terrain but also within.
Retraction:Adaptation – probes the relationships that could exist between the retracted urban densification and the fluid terrain. It will also consider how the dense urban areas can be made more resilient.
