Sun for all

The model of a city showcasing the common dense building development. Prevalently lines of houses side by side only leave a tiny space of nature for each inhabitant (1). Rescue from “suffocation” by taking drastic measures.

With a strong gestus all houses are wiped away (2 & 3). The pile of ruins stays as negative example for man-made environmental destruction. Now nature can take a rest and trees are planted (4). On a small base area with most unfertile soil a large scyscraper is built (5 & 6). A “living machine” with the focus on transmitted light and the need for sun.
