MOVE at The Bays

I believe we face two very big problems in our future. The first is climate change and its inherent impact on biodiversity and healthy environments. And the other… People don’t MOVE anymore and it is detrimental to their health. MOVE is a project that inspires us to move forward and leave behind a lasting impression for our future generations. Accordingly, the research behind this project seeks to answer the question: How can the imperfections and qualities of Glebe Point Island's edge, activate movement within humans and intertidal communities? In the context of MOVES grounding themes; active design and intertidal biodiversity, research has highlighted the downwards trend of humans physical activity engagement, and consequently their health. This is especially escalated in the modern age where physical opportunities are polluted by our sedentary and technological-based lifestyles. In parallel, pollution in Sydney Harbour is trending upwards. Meaning, not only are humans becoming more 'unhealthy' but also are intertidal and underwater communities. MOVE, therefore, has a focus on humans as well as the intertidal 'blue engineering' ecologies that play a significant role in maintaining the condition of Sydney Harbour. This project has a grand vision of creating healthy humans in a healthy harbour. MOVE seeks to stimulate physical activity on the waterfront as well as provide habitat for intertidal communities. Both these actions inevitably improve the health and wellbeing of human users, restore biodiversity within intertidal ecologies, and in turn improve the health of Sydney Harbour.
