St Helena - Living Systems

Sebastian Hicks, Aoife Donnelly

Research output: Other contributionpeer-review


The St. Helena Project offers a unique opportunity to develop a sustainable typology which is relevant to the skills, needs and resources of such a remote and sensitive eco-system. In many ways St Helena is a model of the planet in a micro-cosm. All the challenges we face as a species - and indeed all the challenges other species face are here in their rawest, most apparent and essential form. Colonial pastiche will certainly not do in the 21st century - the world has hopefully moved on! We are searching for a sophisticated approach which reignites the identity of the island in its truest form. The new dawn which accompanies the construction of the airport brings with it opportunities and threats and a marker must be set - in stone - which pathes the way to responsive and effi cient systems which grow out of our most precious matrix - nature. St Helena can lead the way - indeed must lead the way - in terms of harnessing all knowledge, skills and
technologies to sustain that Matrix.
