The Coastal Domains installation at exhibition gives snapshots of the on-going Coastal Domains design research process envisioning possible futures for the coastal territories of the Northeastern Mediterranean. These futures are presented in the form of sixteen books. The visitors reveal the content of the research by physically engaging with the artefacts.
Coastal Domains is a multiyear collaborative research and education project at the University of Patras. It includes multiple case studies initiated on 1.0 x 1.0km coastal contexts. Through systematic mapping analysis, data collection and recording, the initiative is exploring, unveiling and assessing poignant contemporary issues of coastal development, tourism, environment, even education and employment, envisioning cohesive strategies for the design and management of a more sustainable, future Mediterranean.
