Long section showing roof and wetland network weaving together the town
Public spaces created
Public linking with residential spaces. Wetland creates a micro-climate to link to houses using evaporative cooling & shading.
Issues Currently Faced:
Seasonal Flood Inundation Depleting Aquifer Reserves Rainfall Under-utilised
Systems to be implemented:
Cleansing wetland system implemented
