1- pretext t h e e x t r a o r d i n a r y v o y a g e s In Search of the Castaways is an adventure novel which tells the story of the quest for a group of people who were castaway on their ship Britannia. Lord and Lady Glenarvan of Scotland retrieve a message in a bottle from the stomach of a shark and make it their mission to find the castaways. The main difficulty is that the coordinates of the wreckage are mostly erased, and only the latitude (37 degrees) is known; thus, the expedition would have to circumnavigate the 37th parallel in the Southern Hemisphere. Remaining clues consist of a few words in three languages. They are re-interpreted several times throughout the novel to make various destinations seem likely. The search team encounters dangerous seas and frequently wonders offtrack but at the end, the team manages to rescue Captain Grant and the remaining surviving crew.

Among H.G. Wells and Hugo Gernsback, poet, novelist and dramatist Jules Vernes is often remarked as “The Father of Science Fiction“. In 1876 he publishes “In Search of The Castaways“ also known as “The Children of Captain Grant“. (en. wikipedia.org, 2106)

u t o p i a In Verne’s novel, the leading metaphorical character is water. This medium is the provider of the journey; it is also the concealer or revealer of the information that the wanderers sought throughout the journey. Water is the interface of the interaction with their environment and the common ground that drove the group’s actions. Today, water as human territory is in itself a myth yet to be consumed. The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation takes the notion of water as its key utopian design driver. Utopia is the realization that water (not only land) constitutes inhabitable territory, that water has different states and potentials and that it can produce different spatial conditions. r e l o c a t i o n The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation is the ongoing studio project. The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation prepares (P1) the necessary components so that its users will not be forced to relocate when ocean level will rise. The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation provides (P2) a new model of habitation for the local population (coast and not only) ready to remain and pursue a lasting and fruitful life on water. The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation protects (P3) people who face the same danger of ocean level rise anywhere on the globe. The implementation of the model of the Ministry will therefore diminish the number of global environmental migrants. u n d e s i r a b l e The ocean is an undesirable environment for habitation due to lack accessibility, lack of physical terrain and danger of extreme weather conditions and ocean depths. Throughout history, it has seldom seen as the unknown. Apart from industrial purposes, human economy is only based on procuring land surface.

zero hour, noun— a time when a vital decision or decisive change must be made (Merriam-Webster.com, 2017) So you cannot ignore politics. It is present in every change situation. Up until now politics have been viewed in a negative light. This was done intentionally to raise your awareness and concern about political factors. This will now be altered here to a neutral state. Politics can be good or bad. A key lesson learned is that: Change leaders must exploit political factors and use them for the advantage of implementing change. What does the term, “exploit� mean? You want to first recognize that politics is a fact of life. No matter what you say or do, political factors do not disappear. So another critical success factor in change management is: You have to understand the specific political situation in a business unit and then attempt to employ this knowledge in getting support for lasting change.

w h e r e w e s t a n d - z e r o h o u r The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation is a demonstration project showing a model of embracing ocean level rise and consequently taking up life on water. The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation has a strategic approach on the foreseeable event of ocean level rise. The Ministry operates through a set of components (the 3Ps) that Prepare, Protect and Provide for the population and the territory under flood threat. These components define: habitation, transportation, natural environment, infrastructure and logistics. The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation deals with a very important issue regarding major ecological and landmass changes in 500 years time because of rising ocean level. This is a crucial issue because it is not just to do with flooding but with perpetuating water levels and also with the fact that water is going to encroach on so much landmass not just in Denmark but almost everywhere on the Planet. Therefore, how water will be utilized in ways which are productive for society is a key issue addressed by The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation. If water is the new ground, people will have to adapt from a land-based system to a water-based system; this will happen through a vast strategic plan and comprehensive approach. t h e p o l i t i c s o f c h a n g e As much as the nature of the Ministry is provisional (prepares, protects, provides) and regards future prosperity of the inhabitants, its nature is also transitional. It is furthermore challenging to address how people will psychologically adapt to this new type of environment built on, with and around water. Research studies indicate that there will be an approximate mass of 600.000 people affected by flood on the West Coast of Jutland Peninsula. Under these circumstances, the transition from one type of life to another will be huge. The subject matter is to put forward the paradigmatic shift in everyone's lifestyle. In this line, the Danish governmental system which drives the Ministry of Aquatic Habitation will have to face issues concerning new ways of governance, production of energy but first and foremost - management of human activity. The Ministry of Aquatic habitation looks at ways in which to accommodate this huge ecological change which will undoubtedly happen. For the successful outcome of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation, novel understanding of ways to govern will have to be mandatory to undertake. These ways will have to consider not only the finite architectural objects provided by the government (e.g. housing) but it will be in charge of change management and adaptation for its inhabitants to accommodate and acclimatise to the realities of the new built environment and its relationship with the harsh and dangerous conditions of the natural environment (e.g. The North Sea).

2- approach The previous chapter (1- Pretext) displays three angles which have been permanently addressed issues in the design process of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation. These issues are: the metaphoric condition (The Extraordinary Voyages), the pragmatic condition (Zero Hour) and the changing condition (The Politics of Change). q u e s t i o n i n g Based on these angles and assumptions, Sea Fables narrows down the interest area and puts forward three fundamental questions regarding our novel relationship with water. These questions are: A- How will we earn our living in The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation? B- What will constitute design drivers or methods of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation? C- What will be the role of the architect within The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation?

a n s w e r i n g Questions A, B and C are addressed in the following three chapters: 3- The Immaterial Worker, 4- The Gull in Flight and 5- The Water Diviner. They are accompanied by personal or referenced artwork to further express clarity. This Critical Written Reflection does not claim to produce a complete and exhaustive demonstrative answer to the aforementioned questions, but it does link relevant topics or point out to certain angles which call for further exploration and reasoning.

ethereal, adjective— extremely delicate and light in a way that seems not to be of this world. synonyms: immaterial, intangible, celestial (Collins English Dictionary) Dualism in Metaphysics is the belief that there are two kinds of reality: material (physical) and immaterial (spiritual). In Philosophy of Mind, Dualism is the position that mind and body are in some categorical way separate from each other, and that mental phenomena are, in some respects, non-physical in nature. (en.wikipedia.org, 2016)

t i t l e a n d s u b t i t l e The title of this Critical Written Reflection is Sea Fables. Water not only provides the physical dimension of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation, but water also serves as the territory where fantasy resides: the realm of myths and legends of the sea. As a consequence, the title of this CWR is inspired by this layer of investigation into the project. The Subtitle of Sea Fables is On Territories of the Ethereal. Acting as a complement, Sea Fables comes as the textual concerted reference to The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation. Its mission is to highlight immaterial attributes of the Ministry. Rather than producing an inventory, the three chapters are seen as a collection of short texts (fables) that deal and interpret the keyword ethereal assuming various critical positions. Following this keyword the texts investigate through self-reflexive thinking, notions which do not intrinsically have a physical presence: ethereal as immaterial, as ever-changing and as intuitive in the order of the chapters, respectively. These notions cut diagonally across the ordinary disciplinary boundaries so as to bring crisp and fresh identities to the overall design process of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation. This strategy is in accordance with the original moment of realization that water constitutes the (physical) territory of the project. In addition, Sea Fables is viewed as an element of lingual education about sea and its values. Because of its written form, it mediates dialogue between people who suffer similar hardships of ocean flood but want to share knowledge with compassion and generosity.

3- the immaterial worker This chapter discusses question A- How will we earn our living in The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation?

commodity, noun— an article of trade or commerce, especially a product as distinguished from a service. (Collins English Dictionary) The term immaterial labor was coined by Italian sociologist and philosopher Maurizio Lazzarato in his 1997 essay "Immaterial Labor". It was published as a contribution to "Radical Thought in Italy" and edited by Hardt and Virno. It was republished in 1997 as: "Lavoro immateriale. Forme di vita e produzione di soggettività ." (Lazzarato, 1997)

16

The theoretical notional background of immaterial labor is here analyzed. It is worth asserting this notion as it was first elaborated by Marx. He acknowledges this concept in his Theories of the Surplus Value. He argues that it is a characteristic element of productive workers, that is, workers who produce capital, that their labor produces goods, material wealth (Marx, 1961). The connotation to this is that those who produce immaterial wealth do not constitute productive workers. Let us immediately proceed to an overview of the notion of immaterial labor. Immaterial labor is an academic term used to describe the affective and cognitive commodities produced by work that exist outside the traditional wage-based consideration of labor as a material-commodity-producing activity, as well as the activity of producing this new form of commodity (en.wikipedia.org, 2017). Studies of immaterial labor have included analysis of commodities produced by work amidst the Internet, although immaterial labor is understood as a concept pre-dating digital technologies, specifically in the performance of gender and domestic roles, and other aspects of affective and cognitive work. (Terranova, 2003)

Toyotism, Totyotism (or Toyotaism) is the term often used, by analogy with Fordism and Taylorism, to refer to the management culture and labor processes dominant in Japan, the US, Europe and other developed capitalist countries in the latter part of the twentieth century.

t h e c l a s s i c d e f i n i t i o n Immaterial labor is defined as the labor that produces the informational and cultural substance of the commodity. More specifically defined, immaterial labor refers to two different aspects of labor. According to Lazzarato: 1- As regards the "informational content" of the commodity, it refers directly to the changes taking place in workers' labor processes in big companies in the industrial and tertiary sectors, where the skills involved in direct labor are increasingly skills involving cybernetics and computer control (and horizontal and vertical communication. (Lazzarato, 1997) 2- As regards the activity that produces the "cultural content" of the commodity, immaterial labor involves a series of activities that are not normally recognized as "work" - in other words, the kinds of activities involved in defining and fixing cultural and artistic standards, fashions, tastes, consumer norms, and more strategically, public opinion. (Lazzarato, 1997) p r o d u c t i o n o f s u b j e c t i v i t y Taking into account that production today is a direct assembly of various social relations, we can state that the raw material of immaterial labor is subjectivity. In this line, The Ministry of Aquatic habitation becomes the ideological environment where subjectivity is defined and recreated. The production of subjectivity ceases to be only an instrument of social control (for the production of mercantile relationships) and becomes directly productive, because the goal of our post industrial society is to construct the consumer / communicator dialogue. (Lazzarato, 1997) In short, we can conclude to a certain extent that immaterial workers within The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation will be the main producers of subjectivity. Immaterial workers are those who work in advertising, fashion, marketing, television, cybernetics, and so forth. Immaterial workers satisfy a demand of the consumer and at the same time establish that demand. (Lazzarato, 1997)

The collage on the right displays the gulls in their encircling movement, catching fish with their beaks and making ripples on the water surface. The water surface is this completely blank surface which is constantly moving. The ocean forms waves which form crests which break into white foam. There is nothing really to be recognized on this homogeneous plane, not because of the absence of signifiers, but because of their continuous transformation. The signifier is ephemeral due to its particular ever-changing condition.

4- the gull in flight This permanent ever-changing condition has also been addressed in enormous volumes of philosophical writing with deep roots of various cultures. This notion has also been the counterpoint relationship in debating the pilgrimage as conflicting the destination, the fraction as opposing the whole, etc. In this line, the quote of Watts is relevant and in the same frame of reference with the collage shown above: A wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing. (Watts, 2016)

Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and popularizer of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. Born in Chislehurst, England, he moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York. (en.wikipedia.org, 2016)

In the foreseeable events of ocean level rise, people will have to indulge change. Population will need to adapt from a land-based system to a water-based system. This process will happen through a vast strategic planning and a comprehensive approach which will mean more than providing a series of what we often define as architectural objects or enclosed spaces. Architecture is not involved in these kinds of problems because the overall process of architectural decision-making follows the straight line between demand and finite object. Architects are usually involved in producing buildings, which is an objectfixated area of activity. In a more emblematic situation is the flying gull used to demonstrate the immense potential of an architecture which does not celebrate the end-object. This situation in described below: Our building problem is just the opposite of Etienne Jules Marey’s famous inquiry into the physiology of movement. Through the invention of his “photographic gun,” he wanted to arrest the flight of a gull so as to be able to see in a fixed format every single successive freeze-frame of a continuous flow of flight, the mechanism of which had eluded all observers until his invention. What we need is the reverse: the problem with buildings is that they look desperately static. It seems almost impossible to grasp them as movement, as flight, as a series of transformations. Everybody knows that a building is not a static object but a moving project, and that even once it is has been built, it ages, it is transformed by its users, modified by all of what happens inside and outside, and that it will pass or be renovated, adulterated and transformed beyond recognition. (Latour and Yaneva, 2016)

To better discern I contemplate on a particular case that construes in the same manner but at a very small scale the potential previously demonstrated. For Zumthor who presents intriguing correspondences with Heidegger's writings, a door handle is to him: I used to take hold of it when I went into my aunt’s garden. That door handle still seems to me like a special sign of entry into a world of different moods and smells. I remember the sound of gravel under my feet, the soft gleam of waxed oak staircase. I can hear the heavy front door closing behind me as I walk along the dark corridor and enter the kitchen (Zumthor, 1998)

Martin Heidegger was a German philosopher and a seminal thinker in the Continental tradition and philosophical hermeneutics. According to the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy, he is "widely acknowledged to be one of the most original and important philosophers of the 20th century. (en.wikipedia.org, 2016) Phenomenology is the study of structures of consciousness as experienced from the first-person point of view. The central structure of an experience is its intentionality, its being directed toward something, as it is an experience of or about some object. (Stanford Ecnyclopedia of Philosophy, 2017)

And he continues: A question. A question I ask myself as an architect. I wonder: what is this <Magic of the Real> — Café at a student's hostel, a thirties picture by Baumgartner. Men, just sitting around — and they're enjoying themselves too. And I ask myself: can I achieve that as an architect — an atmosphere like that, its intensity, its mood. And if so, how do I go about it? And I think: yes, you can. And I think: no, you can't. And the reason I can is because there are good things that are not so good in the world. (Zumthor, 2006) As previously demonstrated in narrative and phenomenological terms, The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation may be defined in manners that celebrate experience and emotions as quantifiable tools. Apropos of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation, an attempt is made below: You could feel a peculiarly funny stillness, much alike those torrid spring afternoons spent in your grandmother’s garden while finishing one of Jules Verne’s adventure novels. The anchors of my memories rapidly sunk in the austral winter nights and the staggering Andean highlands, in the city of Concepcion and Parallel 37, in the rumbustious herds of the Pampas and the dramatic landscapes of La Paz. To some extent, this was the same mental scale collision that anyone faces when passing between any two fields of wheat. She touched my shoulder and asked me: “How do you find the sea?” “Do you like it, or should it be different?” “No” I replied, “The sea is exactly as it is supposed to be… but what about the shore? Why is there a shoreline all around the sea? The sea should be endless. We should not be able to see the other side...” We can shortly conclude this chapter by stating that The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation can rely on design drivers that emphasize the sensorial facets of the spatial experience. This strategy can be presented under the dual term space-sensation (unlike the classical and repetitive space-material or spacestructure).

5- the water diviner This chapter discusses question C- What will be the role of the architect within The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation?

In consequent relation to the previous chapter which deals with design drivers or methods, the last chapter will investigate the role of the architect as seen the agent coordinating these processes. The outcome will be seen as the definition of the new institution of the architect (the role of the architect).

The Water Diviner is a 2014 AmericanAustralian historical fictional war drama film directed by and starring Russell Crowe in his directorial debut. The screenplay was written by Andrew Anastasios and Andrew Knight. The film is loosely based on the book of the same name, written by Andrew Anastasios and Dr Meaghan Wilson-Anastasios. (en. wikipedia.org, 2016)

Based on Russell Crowe's production, a very particular relationship with the act of finding water as a vital resource is described below: Dowsing is a type of divination employed in attempts to locate ground water, buried metals or ores, gemstones, oil, grave-sites (Kenney, 2009) and many other objects and materials without the use of scientific apparatus. Dowsing is also known as divining, especially in reference to interpretation of results (Naylor). Contemporary architectural rhetoric is mainly influenced by a fictitious dichotomy between design and chance. This is also driven by the false belief that the role of the architect is to avoid the imprecise and incidental. In addition to the previous description of finding resources, the approach to this finding is described below as being purely incidental: Dowsing is considered a pseudoscience, and there is no scientific evidence that it is any more effective than random chance (Vogt, Hyman, 1979) Up until now, an attempt has been made to define two aspects to be considered in the definition of the new institution of the architect. Hence the architect is seen as an agent who transforms the design process into a continuous endeavor of finding resources. Moreover, this act of continuous search is concluded intuitively.

The two aspects previously defined (search and intuition) are translated in a very clear manner into a comprehensive definition of the new institution of the architect. The new institution of the architect relies on a repetitive search of resources following intuitive methods. This approach will facilitate a broader range of grounding architectural decisionmaking within The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation. The definition is presented below in the words of Manuel Gausa:

intuition, noun— direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process; immediate apprehension. (en.wikipedia. org, 2016)

The water-diviner is capable of finding water under stones. Everybody looks at him in amazement, completely confused and he, armed with a simple wooden mechanism, scours the territory until he points out — with complete certainty — the place to dig the well. The people around him look at each other in disbelief, but after the prospecting works liquid gushes forth inexhaustibly. The water-diviner is not a magician, he doesn’t have supernatural talents. The water-diviner has a technique. He respects certain strategies when he walks around a piece of land. He follows clues and he isn’t the one who digs the well, but the one who points out the place. The Water diviner answers material calls (but immaterial for others). We want water-diviner architects. (Gausa, Cros and Porras, 2003)

6- conclusions An attempt has been made in this Critical Written Reflection to construct a textual reference related to The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation. Sea Fables and The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation function as an intellectually coordinated and notionally reciprocal piece of work. With this in mind, Sea Fables is a key design driver for the further development of the The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation. As previously noted, it represents a collection of short texts (fables) with the role of adding dimensions with the purpose of enriching the proposed environments and architectures. These dimensions are driven by the keyword ethereal which acts as a generic phrase throughout this construction, and which is differently translated in three chapters: 3- The Immaterial Worker, 4- The Gull in Flight and 5- The Water Diviner.

In addition to this, Sea Fables embodies more than a collection of pieces of text, because it has been in itself a method of research and investigation. We have to agree upon the aspect that The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation is a large-scale strategic development which has mostly concerned a top-down design approach. On one hand, this approach has been pursued through the various decisions of the architectural project. On the other hand, this approach has also been dictated by the very precise title-term Ministry which brings an official and corporate identity to the project. Nevertheless, Sea Fables holds a determinant role in the development of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation because it complements the renowned top-down approach to design with its counterpart - the bottom-up approach. This is pursued through the examination of the three initial questions: A- How will we earn our living in The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation? BWhat will constitute design drivers or methods of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation? C- What will be the role of the architect within The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation? With this in mind, the ultimate role of Sea Fables is to enrich an architectural discourse which might fall in the obsessive world of architectural objects, tectonics and form-finding strategies. Sea Fables aspires to evoke the human factor of The Ministry of Aquatic Habitation: the immaterial, the ever-changing and the intuitive condition of human spirit.
