Eco Engineering Sea Walls

Alex has been developing 3D printed habitat designs for seawalls since 2014 through his marine studio Reef Design Lab. Seawalls are an ever present structure in our intertidal environments and are very rarely designed in a way that provides shelter for native animals. Normally a seawall is completely flat and devoid of crevices minimising the potential for colonising organisms. Through RDL's research partnerships we have been looking into how we can design seawalls to maximise the colonisation of native species leading to greater biodiversity.
