Abstract

In my recent work on the Maldives (Bremner, 2016), I drew on Philip Hayward’s notion of the aquapelago (Hayward 2012a, 2012b) to theorize the Maldives and to develop a new metageographical concept for architecture in today’s globalized world. In this short contribution to Shima Debates, I will highlight my observations on the the Maldives and the concept of the aquapelago occasioned by this work.
