TSUNAMI MITIGATED ARCHITECTURE

Description

ARCHITECTURE Studies for Tsunami resistant architecture. We cannot oppose the Tsunami force, but we can search to mitigate the force consequences.

Based upon the Jetties currently under construction in Aberdeen Harbour, Scotland, Thames Tidal Barrier,  and “wave-slamming”, absolute precision is required to effectively re-direct, absorb and diffuse the rush of water, its force and remaining tidal wave effects. Here the energy is re-routed and absorbed within turbines housed in titanic sized basins. Certain floating structures are designated to rise after any higher water effect,  and generate power.
