Title: Plants within Urbanization Progress
Keywords: sustainability, plants, urbanization, spatial experience, spatial balance, urban farming, gardening
Today over half of the world’s population live in urban areas, but the process of urbanization results in the common issue like, population explosion, pollution and stress because people are living under a synthetic environment. Plants, one of natural ecologic members that adjusting and balances natural life cycle is scarcely considered properly but the effect it can bring to is under estimation. I wonder how plants are able to maximize the comfort of living and how visual and mental experience can be enhanced and affected by growing plants within different spatial formation.
For this project I will be discussing and researching on the format and purpose of urban planting, and research on how plants energize and elevate the urban environment. Examples out there will also include the ability of composition and selection of plants can cure and improve the negative social communication and phenomenon. In terms of the physical presentation, I am designing a planter that generates intimacy between human beings and plants , based on the research writing, the final result and achievement will then be emerged since the form and exact function is still not decided yet.
Harvey, Justice ,Nature and the Geography of Difference:
+He’s asking us to rethink about the definition of nature and examines how “nature” and “environment” are viewed within contemporary world.
+The voice of nature within us becomes a key components of action and understanding. (How we define nature on our domination while the reality is most of environmental phenomenon emerged because of our self-positioned separation.)
