Field - 1. a broad, level, open expanse of land. 2. a cultivated expanse of land, especially one
devoted to a particular crop: a field of corn. 3. a portion of land or a geologic formation containing
a specified natural resource. 4. an event space. 5. An area or region where business activities
are conducted: sales representatives in the field. 6. a region of space characterized by a
physical property, such as gravitational or electromagnetic force or fluid pressure, having a
determinable value at every point in the region.
Icelus Field is a proposal for the Chong Kneas flood plain community on Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia. Visiting sites in Cambodia, Vietnam, and China, studies in plastic forming, bicycles, site, water collection, mechanical connection, cycles, mobility, and deployability begin to form a solution
tailored to the people of the flood plain. The design is a moveable marketplace, populated
by both land and water dwellers and activated by the pressures of the tides. The proposed
market is designed around used bike frames while the roof of the structure is plastic
formed material that are used to harvest water for the much needed population that dwell
