            Fish Architecture embraces the common spaces that we inhabit with aquatic animals. Here, we develop an approach to redesign these spaces as an interspecies collaboration. First, we should empathise with the non-human perspectives, while acknowledging limitations in understanding non-human perspectives of our mutual Umwelt. Next, we imagine new spaces that do not follow pre-existing human concepts. To achieve this in the framework of Fish Architecture, we merge the two disciplines art and science and apply their complementary methods to understand and imagine Interspecies Spaces. The Fishy Manifesto captures our process and explorations, as well as, offering a practical approach to coexistence. Fish Architecture is divided into three distinct phases, each offering room for observation and experimentation in different ecosystems. The third phase allows us to join aquatic and terrestrial life at the surface, paving a path to genuine ecological coexistence.
