The Kogami Tsunami Alert Community uses existing technology to grow coral as a renewable construction material to create a tsunami breakwater and emergency shelter in Padang, Indonesia
Two masters students from the School of Architecture have won the prestigious 3DReid student prize.
Run in conjunction with the Architects’ Journal, David Devereau and Elifira The, won the prize for their project Kogami Tsunami Alert Community project winning the top prize of £1,500.
The project showed how tidal power could be used to grow coral, which could act as a breakwater in the event of a tsunami and be used to construct tsunami shelters.
Professor Andre Brown, Head of the School, said: “The judges were impressed with the quality of submission, and delighted with the thoroughness and plausibility of the winning project.”
Ben and Elifira also won the Reilly Medal for Design at the School’s degree show in July for their assignment.
