Sikka’s aim is to introduce 3D printed artificial reefs to Maltese waters in order to regenerate and support the local marine ecosystem, using clay as a material. These reefs will be designed with local marine life as the focus, providing forms and structures that encourage growth and help them seek refuge in the reefs. The project will seek to remedy issues caused by the removal of litter from the seabed and overfishing by creating personalised reefs for the marine life found in Malta. Sikka will bring together local experts in each field to develop a replicable model that can be rolled out at scale and expanded upon in a sustainable modular fashion.
