The proposal not only aims to boost the tourism scene but also enrich the area in a community sense: a well-maintained ecological park that is beneficialfor educational purpose as well as for leisure. One of the visions is to foster the diverse demographics and local community from Silvertown and North Woolwich with a sense of belonging. Besides, Aqualibrium offers opportunities for the underrepresented community who are currently waiting for their work and stay permit. The community needs a temporary accommodation and space for socialising. The project will be allowing and encouraging them to participate in its work-while-stay program where they get temporary accommodation with lower rent in exchange for their contribution.
Next, research labs near the Thames offer students from UEL and professionals to study and exchange knowledge on the welfare and preservation of wildlife in an immediate setting.
In terms of circular economy, the construction strategy takes reclaimed materials from the site excavation. The site will practise natural land-purifying method before commencing construction. By careful landscape planning, there are opportunities for water treatment and stormwater runoffs management. Can the oyster cultivation be waste-free and experienced hands-on by the public? Lastly, it is important to note that the concept of circularity does not halt at the idea of materiality, but relays onto the exchange of knowledge and skills.
