Project Name:The Agriculture Apartment

About:
Since ancient times, land has been inseparable from human life. Regardless of the rapid development of industry, mankind ultimately relies on nature to give food and heart to relax. In response to the advent of the information age, homes and activities are no longer restricted to specific locations.

Due to the expansion of landuse requirement, our living spaces gradually covered with high-rise buildings, however in contrast, nature environment decreased by time. High density of buildings cause air pressure which is huge and easy to be got. If we can use this power with a more efficient way, we may release the pressure and destroy to the environment. Besides, the urban square provides intelligent natural resources cycle system and combines the design of water, light, wind and temperature, allows people having a comfortable public space.

Project Name:Sun Patio

About:
The right to enjoy sunshine is a basic human right enacted by the United Nations. Since the cancellation of Street Shadow Act in 1987, the inaccessibility of light has increased the shadow area of buildings with the increase of population and the floor height, which has made the low-level residents in Hong Kong live in darkness for many years. In a such high cost land as Hong Kong, the open space and the ecological green land are compressed and reduced year by year. The narrow living space and closed visual landscape make residents lose their most basic living needs.
