Cultivating Conditions for Interspecies Life to Flourish

Why We Are Zoaistas

We have a vision for making a difference above and below the surface. 


In a world, oftentimes, overshadowed with doom and gloom about the future we face due to climate change, sea level rise, ocean acidification, and many disasters, we bring experiential art and interdisciplinary collaboration into the equation to solve the world's complex challenges. 


"Zoa" means animals of a specific kind, living beings. 


We're passionate and dedicated to designing unique marine habitats, combining traditional and digital fabrication to regenerate biodiverse coral reef ecosystems. 


Through curiosity and dedication to our wild ancestral architects, we aim to develop a new aesthetic + functional vocabulary for them to colonize and co-construct. 


Zoaistas cultivate the conditions for interspecies life to flourish.
