FlowInForm Project Strives for a New Land-to-Water Built Typology

While architecture may be generally understood as comprising occupiable structures that have been manmade on solid ground, the FlowInForm project works to develop a new building and aesthetic typology that would serve to negotiate the cusp of land and water. Studying the behaviour of different liquid substances when they're exposed to one another, the team of Secil Zontur, Fei Wang, Lisa Kinnerud and Abel Cao have created a possible built form that's impressively fluid.

With the help of computer modelling software, the designers collaborated on several spellbinding ideas that comprise complex curves, swirls and formal transitions that have not been possible to realize with contemporary construction materials. Seemingly mixing with site, FlowInForm moves organically from soil to sea, embodying spaces that are just as free-flowing as the exterior.
