The research carried out by MikeViktorViktor architects concentrates on designing new sections of North Sea coastline for 2070. As a consequence of climate change, increasing demographic pressure, and energy and other crises, by 2070 a new coastal landscape will have taken shape. By 2070 the Belgian coast will be given a new parcelling structure and will be a compact residential city with generous collective public spaces. The landscape of dunes and water will be dominated by the rhythm of the sea, the seasons and erosion or, in a word, time.
This research topic is a detail assignment based on a number of major themes in the 'Future Commons 2070' research project by the Magnificent Surroundings collective.
