This project is based in Hong Kong, crowded and congested city between mountain and sea. We are trying to add public spaces and green effect inside this concrete jungle. After studying the weather and needs of Hong Kong, we realized that the surfaces we should be using are not the grounds but the walls, facades, rooftops and terraces. We also should create more surfaces in order to optimize our intervention. Our notion of green deviates from the traditional meaning and we use artificial greenery producing more efficient results.  We created different strategies of intervention and used different systems to create better micro climate and reduce the energy consumption in the city.
