• Urban Aeration

    Can the physical materiality of our built environment actually reduce the carbon dioxide in the air? The concept for the site is that of a porous filter composed of carbon capture and oxygen enhancing natural minerals. Using this as a landscape element, we create a porous plaza on the site, which acts to filter and cool the surrounding urban air through means of induced air current. The residential units are similarly arrayed in a simple block on the southern edge of the site, itself also clad in remediation minerals.
