The ecology of memory: Oblivious beach Scheveningen

'The ecology of memory: Oblivious beach Scheveningen' is an experimental project with a narrative story beyond the boundary of architecture. It begins with the imaginary background happening in 2100 on the beach of Scheveningen, the Netherlands. The building ‘Memory tank’ stands in the sand dune as if it rises from the ground overlooking the sea. It is an operated machine that helps you to release sufferings from any particular memory. By following a ritual, as a visitor, let the memory away from you and bury it in the space with the collective memories in the multiple layers of time. The project attempts to arouse a discussion that everything is circulating within the system of nature interaction.

Thesis

A crack in the wall:
Journey towards discovering the way of architecture be alive in the city.

Looking at new shapes of cities on the international scene, the clear state of the urban realm is losing ground. It has been filled with artificials, which is the result of interventions by expert planners. In contradiction, the city man has arrived at a stage that longs for peaceful coexistence with nature. How can we let architecture to be alive? As an answer in this turbulent era activated with multiple overlapping phenomena, the paper introduces unconventional approaches towards the relationship between architecture and nature with the performative terms 'Crack, Hypothetical Jar and Fourfold' from Martin Heidegger. By following the journey as a companion, the paper shifts your notions of nature and rethink the relation with it as a city man.
