Inspired by the water current and tide cycles within Bridgewater Bay, Collaborative Landscape aims to challenge and redefine our current connection to the landscape, transforming the anthropocentric behaviors of Western culture that treat the landscape as a passive resource for human consumption. Through the proposal of a temporal salt and calcium carbonate formation, humans bear witness to its continual evolution over time in collaboration with the natural environment. This strong connection between site and materiality reinforces the notion of a collaborative landscape given the sites influence on the life cycle of the project. With a focus on the experiential journey, the evident association between landscape and memory is utilized in order to inspire a more subtle and attuned relationship with the land. Collaborative Landscape acts as an experiment in deepening our connection to land with the intention of building a deeper ecological consciousness. The multidisciplinary nature of the design intends to become a precedent in the pursuit of implementing a culture that grows with the Earths biological wealth rather than depleting it.
