Heat Islands

Work in progress - Jan 2023

Acknowledging the Urban Heat Island effect, the proposed project aims to improve the city’s environment to withstand extreme heat and further encourage walking through the integration of shading devices and trees. The centrepiece of the project is a complex next to the train station that includes a mulberry tree greenhouse, a silkworm workshop, and a community cafe. The workshop will produce silk fabric on foldable structures for shading, while the cafe will serve products from mulberry trees. This project envisioned the transition to a more sustainable city.
