Grounds for coexistence

Imagine the farmland surface of Hjertelia should rise by 6 meters, and under this elevated ground, life could flourish. Grounds for Coexistence stacks traditional models of farmland, domestic space, and work, one over the other, to cultivate contemporary synergies between them. The footprint of the house is neutralized by sandwiching it between two productive grounds. Micro neighborhoods emerge by the composition of three to four units into clusters where the social tableau of the in-between encourages a model of cohabitation. The density of clusters form a human space but remain permeable to non-human inhabitants, and provide a framework for interwoven ecotones. Against the existing diagram of the residual forest, we strive for a vision of the forest as threads through a tapestry.
