Challenge

Building with nature has many benefits to our wellbeing, such as improving our memory, reducing stress and boosting performance.

The key challenge was to design a creative sustainable solution for an outdoor florist shop. The proposal, which is 100% eco-friendly, also improves the health of urban residents by reconnecting them with nature. The design proposal also enhances the eco-system in urban environments by providing habitats for a variation of wildlife, thus promoting biodiversity. It will also enable green infrastructure in an urban environment whilst naturally reducing air pollution.

The proposal’s economical construction further adds to its uniqueness. The whole structure is made of prefabricated components that are entirely made from recycled construction plywood, which are easy to assemble and disassemble. The majority of these prefabricated components are planters, which will house a variety of edible and non-edible plants. They are designed to blur the boundaries between the outside and the inside.

This sustainable Biophilic shop can also be transformed internally into multiple functions, using pop-up furniture, which will allow for efficient use of space and flexibility. At the end of its life, the planters can be reused by the community as urban allotments thus promoting social, economic and environmental sustainability.

RETHINKING THE FUTURE OF SUSTAINABLE URBAN DEVELOPMENT

The rise in population & urbanisation will have severe impacts on our cities’ infrastructures and resources, as well as the health and wellbeing of its inhabitants. This dramatic rise in urbanisation coupled with climate change will also require a significant shift in the way we design our built environments. We need to focus our attention to rethinking the design of future Sustainable Cities to ensure they are more Liveable, Resilient and Inclusive.
