The theme of the Architecture Biennale: How do we want to live? The theme of the European Cultural Centre: TIME SPACE EXISTENCE. Quite quickly it became clear to me that I was devoting my attention to water, more precisely to the oceans. The reason is simple: we humans are also water beings.

Accordingly, my project reflects the current situation of climate change. It is a call for more mindfulness and respect towards nature, especially water, the life-sustaining and life-giving element. Climate change does not differentiate people by skin color, religion or ethnicity, rich or poor. Climate change forces humanity to work together and requires contributions from everyone to make life in this world more livable.

That’s what my project is all about: “the ocean starts under your feet”, pay attention to where and how you go.
