The works presented in the exhibition “INLAND, SEAWARD – The Transcoastal Project” closes the first year of a new three years cycle of Transitional Territories Studio on the de- / re-territorialization of places, structures and cultures between land and sea.
For the academic year 2020-2021, Transitional Territories studio of the TU Delft, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Delft, focused on the geographic space of four climate zones, informed by four lines of inquiry (matter-topos-habitat-geopolitics) and identified scales and subjects of concern. The studio collectively envisioned the possibility and acceptance of diverse forms of inhabitation between land and water—seeking a revised balance between society and nature. The research on the state of the territorial project was developed in collaboration with Diploma Unit 9 at the Architectural Association, School of Architecture, London. The unit develops projects on a territorial scale, with a strong focus on spatial diagnostics and territorial transformation. At the heart of the unit lies the idea that crises should be revealed and designed rather than latent and suffered.
