    event: Launch of SITREP.at with TERRA PROJECTS and +POOL

    20 West 44th Street
    New York, NY 10036

    TERRA PROJECTS investigates the relationship between architecture and our natural landscape – both designing for and discussing the inevitable flux that is present in all things not made by man. Conjecture is developed from a multi-disciplinary approach of how architecture not only can improve the natural landscape, but can facilitate a better quality of life for the inhabitants. TERRA‘s first project, RIG, is a rapidly deployable shelter aimed at improving the quality of life for scientists in some of the most extreme environments on our planet. RIG currently has a Patent-Pending and will be presented to the US Antarctic Program later this year in Boulder, Colorado.

    +POOL is the col­lab­o­ra­tive ini­tia­tive of design stu­dios Fam­ily and Play­Lab to build a float­ing pool for every­one in the rivers of New York City. This project seeks to improve the use of the city’s nat­ural resources by pro­vid­ing a clean and safe way for the pub­lic to swim in New York City’s waters. As both a pub­lic amenity and an eco­log­i­cal pro­to­type, +Pool is a small, but excit­ing, prece­dent for envi­ron­men­tal urban­ism in the 21st Century.

    This event is organized by Dave Irwin, of organicMobb & TERRA PROJECTS, hosted by SITREP.at, and sponsored, in part, by The General Society.
