Inner city woodland
Cardiff city centre is the place that many vehicles travel around, which causes a certain degree of pollution. For homeless people living in Cardiff city centre, they have to live on dusty and polluted pavements. According to the research, respiratory diseases caused by pollution have become one of the main causes of homeless death.
My project strategy is to introduce a dense woodland on a capped landscape of the demolished remains of St. David’s 1. The density of woodland is to act as a sequestration of carbon monoxide/ dioxide produced by the nearby road and become a city centre.
Homeless people will have different states on the pavement. One of the states is called “Ecstatic State”, especially appears after taking drugs. Under this state, homeless people will feel that their body is floating in the air, as if this state is leading them to a higher place.
Then I looked into the different eye levels of homeless. I found that homeless people’s eye levels are relatively lower because they live on the pavement, and the things they see are very limited. However, for others, they can look down to the homeless people on pavement, and enter the tall building to overlook the city.
My concept is bringing the homeless people off the ground, take them into towers, wider their views and provide the same treatment as other people.
