Terrain: Marsh land/ Turkey Point’s nuclear station
Program: Post- nuclear disaster/ Radiation affects
The proposal is located in Florida, USA, and focuses primarily on Turkey Point`s nuclear station, which is considered to be at high risk for a possible nuclear explosion. The main aim of the project is the creation of a community that will act as a healing sanctuary in the event of such an explosion, addressing both the immediate and long-term aftermath for affected residents. Salt is a key concept of the project: salt has been shown to have great healing potential for radiation absorbers, as its iodine can minimize radiation levels in human body. The design of the sanctuary takes into consideration the effects of radiation and the needs of its users, including the visually impaired, the handicapped, and genetically-affected radiation absorbers. The proposal includes private spaces designed specifically for different types of sidabled users, as well as a hospital, a cooking and eating area, an aquaponics farm, a dark room, a hamam area, an educational centre, a phychological centre, and programs for entertainment like fishing, net climbing and a playground.
