TetraPOT 2.0 – The Evolution of Greener Sea Defense, 2015-2018
The TetraPOT is an artificial shoreline defense that works with the surrounding ecosystem. Sheng-Hung Lee designed a 3-part mold with holes and a central chamber to contain a mangrove seedling. As the mangrove matures, its root system seeks out the holes and connects to adjacent seeded pods, creating an interlocking root system.
