Nowadays, everyone has easy access to geospatial information through smart devices. The way we experience and interact with our urban environment has changed dramatically. For example, you can learn about trees you see at a park, their name and characteristics (e.g. Singapore, New York); you can report what wildlife you spotted in your neighborhood and share it through an App (e.g. Bioatlas). ...

Rewilding Singapore is the theme for the ongoing MLA landscape architectural studio at National University of Singapore. Learning from Singapore’s remaining tropical rain forest; its ecosystem, structure, and water-nutrient cycle, our studio agenda is to transplant such natural principals into urban areas. How can we accumulate ecological value for existing urban green space aside from simply ...

Liquids substances on Earth are naturally fall and flow to the lower grounds, forms an erosion landscape that human finds them beautiful. Our site locates at the intersection where the flow meets the ground and is surrounded by mountains. The process of erosion that inspired the shape of the landscape became features in our designs.

The project educates visitors about waste and energy recycling through its own design: the farm recycles organic waste from restaurants in the building below to become fertilizer for plants. The design also introduces the concept of clean energy through solar cells placed at edges of planting areas, illuminating paths and visibly highlighting larger conceptual themes. Turning infrastructure into ...
