The CALTROPe lace works as a catalyst in the mouths endangered. The name is a contraction between a "caltrop" and "rope". The Caltrop-lace system is a easy to install filter barrier, which has a minimal effect on the environment with temporary presence. It incorporates the existing natural forces, dynamics and materials in estuarine areas. The objective is to develop a filterable lace structure, which can be used for different things: - hold the alluvium as well as the organic integration, - organize mangroves along rivers and seas. Its urban organization, as well is inspired by the pattern of cell division coral. Villages grow into three levels: - water as a waterway, - pontoons as access to agricultural platforms and traps for fish - and finally the level of housing. Using materials that are easy to produce and replace such as bamboo or limestone produced by reverse electrolysis, circular houses are thoughts on a self-build scheme for greater flexibility for users.
