Marcella, you are an architect: how did a project for clean oceans become your degree thesis?
It was rather the other way around: my degree thesis turned into a project for clean oceans. While diving, I saw the problem literally in front of my nose and decided to get engaged in this topic. Just like any architect would do, I started reading books from all sorts of disciplines. I read mechanical engineering scrips, visited recycling facilities, corresponded with NASA, read books about the origins of oceans, studied waste water treatment plants - and eventually developed the "Pacific Garbage Screening" project.
