Hybrid building. Molewa. China. (2015)
The project is a community tree. The project is a variable section that can grow to infinity. The project is shade and air.
Historically the Chinese city is protected from the sun with the shadow of a wall, sheltered by a pagoda or under the dense canopy of a tree. Our project takes this tradition, but reversed, and transforms the walls in thick horizontal planes, and the treetops in plant porous walls. In our project, the city dweller lives abroad, on hanging terraces, following a tradition that goes back to ancient times; the origins of the culture of the sun.
