What will happen if sea levels rise? Will people retreat inland, or will they go out to sea and explore new opportunities? Climate change tends to be regarded as having a negative impact on our lives. While the effects of climate change are hard to imagine, our entire planet will undeniably have to face new realities, and we might have to adapt to new environments. INLANDSIS proposes a contemporary collage of urban elements. The design forms public and private spaces, islands within the town, streets, dwellings and bridges. Each urban component would eventually float and anchor itself to a neighboring component. In time, many structures would be converted into floating units. The new urban settlement reflects the social and environmental events affecting our daily lives. INLANDSIS simply form a "mothership" consisting of all its arks. They would eventually drift through the lake like an iceberg populated by a small community on a quest for urban peace. Work at Hatem+D Architecture, Québec QC, Canada
