in Urban Conditions
The Terrestrial Field describes a defined area in the city, a three-dimensional habitat, a symbiotic unity of flora, fauna and civilization. The Field includes the processes in the earth, the vegetation on the surface of the earth and the urban buildings above. By raising the buildings, the ground is kept free from intensive human use and a construction stop and deconstruction zone is implemented.
With the implementation of this Terrestrial Fields, the current determining issues of urban development such as climate change and land policy are taken into account.
Terrestrial Fields in Urban Conditions is a self-initiated urban planning project that contributes to the current architectural discourse on the sustainable and socially-just development of our cities. The project was developed digitally as well as analogously. Thus, in addition to a theoretical discussion in the form of essays, large-format pencil drawings were created, which as such cannot be reproduced and thus build a bridge to the project in terms of content: the surface of the earth is finite, the soil is not a reproducible commodity.
The project was shortlisted for the Superscape 2020 Award.
