Lanterns Sea Village is a proposed temporary housing solution for the many surfers who visit Tarifa’s shores in southern Spain. Hundreds of bamboo tetrahedra combine to create a strong, solid structure that extends from the beach out to the sea. Since it’s modular, it can easily be expanded as needed, or even disassembled and recycled entirely, leaving no trace. The floors are made of recycled wood and the sunshades are made of recycled surfboards, which have been cut and glued together. Life in the Sea Lanterns Village is organized on two levels: walkways and stairs are placed at both ground level and 4 meters above sea level for access to the upper-level residences, with kitchens and bathrooms accessible to all. To make the residences energetically independent, it’s possible to draw upon the driving force of the sea by installing mini-turbines, or to take advantage of the large surface area of the roof to install a mini-windmill and amorphous photovoltaic/solar panels.
