ECO-METROPOLIS

The main purpose of this project is to explore the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature and use it as a medium to convey the need to protect the ecology, especially for children, which is a platform for learning and practice.

What I want to do is a strategy rather than a simple construction. I am using the current prototype to intuitively convey the idea I want to express, not only a shape, but its implementability and public acceptance.

This project takes triangles as the basic design element, with the flexible topological ability and structural stability. The project aims to increase the flexibility of performance with modular processing and to reflect the diversity of forms through different construction methods.

The diverse and simple structure is more friendly to the collective participation of the residents, allowing the project to continue through the voluntary contributions and organization of the residents. From the urban point of view, the replicability of the installation is sufficient to fill the vacancy of green space, which is exactly what the local community needs. In addition, various combination forms can better adapt to different green space properties, and the benefits brought by the number of projects are non-linear.

Therefore, the DIY pattern of this project combined with blockchain idea leads to another point—spontaneity, in order to avoid the redundancy caused by mechanical duplication, there is a more open principle for the freedom of module combination, and the feedback to the environment and demand will produce more diverse results.

Each module is relatively independent, you can choose your own position, according to people’s own choices will produce different results, but this spontaneous orientation is clear. Based on the conjecture generated by my research, people can follow such results or improvise. Different adjustments are made, and compared to solve problems passively, what I provide is more like a tool, a problem-solving idea to help people use it to create new needs.
