Because of climate change, in the future Man will have to adapt to live in the swamp. The Drum System is an ecological drainage system, thought to survive in harsh environment. His functioning happens as Ancient Romans times, when upside-down amphoras were used as foundation layer in direct contact with vergin soil, in order to maintain the air in the buildings healthy and dry.


Every day, Man produces huge quantities of plastic, and its storage problem should be sought in the re-use, in this case as foundation layer that doesn’t require excavation, and so doesn’t modify the soil, on the contrary of construction. The new ecologic way of living is inspired by the forgotten past, that comes back as an expanded sound of steps on amphoras shards.
