A proposal for a seaweed-processing plant near Bar Harbor, Maine, the Stack Politic makes ingenious use of hyper-local materials. The aquatic base of the structure would feature stones salvaged from a nearby quarry and arranged in a crib formation. On top of it are drying huts, made of timber with seaweed insulation and topped with a slate roof.

The most innovative building material of all, though, is the surrounding water, which would engulf the base of the structure during high tides, enabling seaweed farmers to canoe up to the huts and deposit their harvest.
