The Amphibious Architecture Project explores interaction between above and underwater worlds.

In a collaborative effort between the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and the Environmental Health Clinic at New York University, two Amphibious Architecture installations have been exploring new ways of how inhabitants above and under water can interact with each other.

A network of reactive buoys collects information from above and below the surface of the water. Through various SMS short codes, humans can text the fish and access information on water quality, presence of fish and other monitored data. Human interest elicits interaction between fish and sensors by stimulating them with changing light conditions, creating a continuous loop of feedback between the two environments.
