A common feature around the coast of Japan, is the use of ‘Tetrapod’ coastal defence systems – where multitudes of identical interlocking cast concrete forms are placed in piles to act as ‘break-waters’. My ‘biomorphic’ four limbed modules settle naturally amongst one another, locking themselves together into one unified mass, just like the rather ‘cold’ and austere concrete versions that inspired them.
