Flood Barrier

3D modeling has become an important tool in my work because it has allowed me to explore and communicate the dimension of time. Once set in motion, this model allowed me to communicate how this buoyant flood barrier, designed for the river Thames in London, could reconfigure to act as a water park and river crossing during normal tides and a dynamic flood barrier capable of providing additional bulwark during outstandingly high tidal surges. These surges have been increasing in frequency over the past two decades to the point where the current barrier will become obsolete by the year 2030.
