Foaming By Earth - Wet Island Effect

By horizontally spreading and vertically stacking, endless urbanization offers human beings more and more space to live. However, it flattens the urban condition. The physical environment in a city is getting worse, and the urban heat island may never be cooled down. 

I propose a system that can relieve the phenomena of climates and urban land use nowadays, the Wet Island Effect.As a storage of water, SOIL plays an important role in this system. The public buildings are constructed of not only SRC but also SOIL, which provides a good environment for plants and public activities.

Laden with urban ecosystem, this type of buildings are islands scattering over the city. These are the infrastructure that can store soil and water, the façade of public areas, and the monuments of the high temperature in the city.
