Building integrated greenery systems allow the provision of greenery beyond the conventional garden and courtyard, to the building itself and even becoming part of a building component. These technologies are relevant in high density urban settings, where land is scarce. The project is designed to push boundaries in sustainable, adaptable high-rise architecture, and the universal design concept could be commissioned for any city in the world.
Tree trenches ensure a healthier microclimate and soil-level environment for plants, which in turn will allow them to be more effective in their effort to reduce heat island effect and water absorption. Crafted as a large cone for conversation, this sculpture will become an iconic landmark within the neighborhood and serve as a permanent navigational tool for visitors and residents alike.
