Designforum 171 – Artificial Coral Reef Design in the Bali Sea and 3D Reconstruction.
Verena Vogler, Barcelona/ Weimar
Coral reefs in the Bali Sea are complex underwater structures that prevent beaches from erosion, serve as habitat for sea life and are major resources for the local fishing industry and tourism. However, currently, they are threatened and already partly destroyed by dynamite fishing, ocean acidification due to elevated
levels of CO2 caused by pollution, and rising sea temperatures due to global warming. Artificial reef systems could help to repair damaged structured and initiate new reefs. In this lecture, Verena Vogler will present two computationally designed artificial pilot reefs, installed and underwater monitored for more than six years in Gili Trawangan, Indonesia.
Verena Vogler is a German architect and doctoral candidate at the InfAR group at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism, Bauhaus University in Weimar (Prof. Sven Schneider and Jun- Prof. Jan Willmann). In her thesis, she develops a computational framework for artificial coral reef design. Since 2014, she works at McNeel Europe S.L. in European Research projects (H2020) and software training
