The Rise of Nature to the City
Today’s cities are being transformed to lifeless creatures making life more
and more difficult for their residents. Nature is receding in cities with its
presence tapering off every day. Meanwhile, people, like mechanical creatures,
feel less and less the presence of nature in the city and this is turning into a
nostalgia for some people.
This project uses the superposition method, the basic map of Esfahan city and
the most important elements of urban nature, such as river, historical
framework and green points system formed based on the city’s scale to create
spaces that are a symbol of green urban nature. In fact, through the abovementioned
spaces, nature remodels and takes up those spaces wherever it is
placed. As those spaces shape up, signs will come into view in the city which
remind us of green nature. Since pure nature does not entail any specific
order, the city’s layers, historical elements and geometry and their adaptation
are used to create a shell that can flaunt greenness. This project provides an
environment that produces a moment of arrest in people’s mechanical lives in
the city. It flaunts its domination over the environment at any point and
makes nature rise into the city.
Nature can win any space. It is only time that will specify its duration.
