TetraPOT

Gold
2016

Current, artificial sea defense structures tend to become dislodged over time by the force of the ocean constantly crashing against them, and can destroy natural scenery. Now, randomly distributed TetraPOTs, weighed down by concrete along coastlines, will create trees and roots that eventually will intertwine, forming a natural sea defense against soil erosion and creating a natural habitat and ecosystem.
