Designated emergency assembly points in the case of an earthquake in Istanbul were announced in 2001. Since then, most of these public spaces have been built up, which raises the question of where everyone will be housed in the case of emergency.
The idea of designing a speculative prototype of a floating emergency house came out of this fact: what if the response is not about stable land, but manageable water?
Fold&Float is now floating on Golden Horn the area that will not be impacted by an earthquake’s tsunami. The prototype can be seen floating at the Earth School satellite at Rahmi M. Koç Museum.
