dc.description.abstractRESEARCH QUESTION: How can an architectural proposition raise awareness of marine resource depletion and support sustainable fishing techniques? This research by design project seeks to address the lack of education about environmental issues and provide a sustainable, land-based fish farm in the hopes of uniting communities through farming practice and sharing of knowledge. Designed for locals and tourists, this facility will be an education centre, fish farm and restaurant. ABSTRACT: Susu aka i Sovi Bay is a sustainable, educational and conservation-driven project based in Fiji, located on one of the two main islands, Viti Levu. The people of Fiji rely heavily on the ocean as their primary source of food, a means of transport, and as a measure of cultural identity. The combination of climate change, tourism, pollution and overfishing has affected marine life and has had a detrimental effect on the economy, local communities and coastal ecosystems. The unsustainable rate of fishing has resulted in various marine species becoming endangered or extinct. This project strives to find an architectural proposition that supports sustainable fish farming techniques, thereby providing a steady food source for local communities. It aims to function as a tourist attraction, providing regular income to the community and an education centre where tourists and local communities can be educated on sustainable fishery management.en_NZ
