Other Natures: designing through technology and nature

Diploma project 2014Other natures are exploring other understanding – or another view on use of nature in the city.

With every attempt to cultivate out environment we form and shape nature the way we want that is limiting its impact on our environment. On the other hand we might be able to find a system – mechanism through which would nature got more productive than usually.

Plants do photosynthesize and therefore have an ability to direct the quality of our atmosphere. Therefore with increasing the production of nature in our cities we might be able to equal increase of carbon dioxide and decrease of oxygen from burning fossil fuels.

02

The project is exploring a possible merging of technology and nature together into one system, one organism that would behave half natural half mechanical.

The technical elements and plants are dependent on each other. The plants are dependent on the machine in order to function more efficiently while the machine produces electricity to create an independent system of actions and reactions. The whole system is monitoring the climatic situation on the site.

The project is exploring possible future solutions for decreasing air quality in particular climatic situation in India. The project is situated in city of Ahmedabad in India. The city of Ahmedabad started to have a serious carbon dioxide pollution problems 10 years ago. And therefore they developed a project for regulating the river banks of Sabarmati river to control the flooding of the city and to gain extra space for further development consisting mainly of green areas that are supposed to clean the air and to function as lungs of the city.

Despite the function of the mechanisms and the whole system of producing electricity and improving climate the design offers spaces for social interaction. Hydroponic way of planting is more effective in order to spare ground for public activities.

07

I developed two main elements that improve climate both in different ways and host two different plant species.

A carbon sink is helping the plants – more specifically ferns to produce least double amount of oxygen as they would in a normal state. The carbon sink is an enclosed environment that sucks the air from outside. It filters the air and creates a carbon dioxide enriched environment for ferns where they get double productive.

A humidifier – is increasing humidity level on the most sunny areas of the site. The element is monitoring the level of humidity and increases it a little by spreading small water particles into the air through nozzles. A raster with a function of an open roof caries an air plants that get all the nutrients they need from the air and provides a shading on small squares incorporated in public ground.

All plants that are part of the elements do function as approximately 5000 m² of a green area spared for public activities.
