Simrishamn is a sleepy fishing town in a decaying region off the coast of the Baltic Sea. EcoLogicStudio’s master plan to redesign the area with algae farms, research labs and activity spaces aims to reinvigorate the town’s economy by involving local farmers, builders, and fishermen in the plans. With a number of interactive sites including a spa and a museum, the studio hopes to inject wealth and even tourism back to the coast.
EcoLogicStudio plans to incorporate the harvesting and use of algae in a number of areas around the town. “Crane Greenhouses” that resemble upside-down trees are planned for unused ports around the coast. Canopies of ETFE pedals will hold small bags that act as tiny greenhouses for algae production.
