New Subjectivities

Umi Baden-Powell (1st Year)

The Liquid Institute

Learning to live with water: the liquid institute is a new research institution that makes public the slippery systems that govern living with water. The liquid institute will be founded as a facility to explore water (both inland waterways and the surrounding “floodable”, “unbuildable” land) as a new territory for affordable, self-build and social housing. Blue spaces (inland waterways, canals and rivers, empty docks, wharfs and floodplains) in the greater london are broadly, publicly owned and could be made available for such housing developments. As well overcoming the technological and political obstacles, it is vital that the liquid institute fosters a new and positive architectural language for living with water.
