Super Dock envisions five different docks for the Navy Yard, one of which embraces 3-D printing and would actually manufacture ships. Another dock would capture water, filter it, and distribute it back into Brooklyn. A third would be a testing laboratory for scientists, while a fourth would be a base for clean technology factories to build electric scooters and solar panels. The Brooklyn Daily notes that Terreform’s wave-like architecture mimics Eero Saarinen’s TWA Terminal at JFK International Airport: equally visionary when unveiled in its own time. Terreform presented a 12-foot by 8-foot prototype of its concept. The architecture itself has no walls and strives to be organic: it merges land and water, buildings are topped with mushrooms, and roofs slant down until they become part of the docks.
