The Bio-Shelters project applies advanced computational methods utilised by architects to design green coastal landscape infrastructure intended for threatened marine ecosystems. Nature’s logic is adapted to create colonies of species other than human. Advanced computation is applied to design 3-dimensional seawall structures supporting ecologically important marine organisms at urbanised coastlines. The project aims to enhance the abundances of native habitat-forming organisms, which are often missing or found in low numbers due to environmental degrading. This paper presents the results of this study, by also revisiting key moments and challenges met and compared along its way.
