Project Details

The project imagines urban space through a perspective that includes not only humans but also other forms of life. The proposal creates a flexible environment to accommodate future unknown urban animal species, as opposed to only existing ones.

The project reveals the concept from two approaches: Physical design and public awareness. The physical design refers to practical interventions applied to urban space for accommodating the living relationship between human and other forms of life, while the public awareness is people’s cognition on sharing and maintaining the urban space together with other forms of life.
