Ecological Edges in the Dense City
The research project has the working title ‘Ecological Edges in the Dense City’, aiming to identify, explore and develop the vertical surfaces in dense urban contexts. The potential of the vertical surfaces, typically the building facades, are unexplored from a sustainable urban development perspective, but also from the perspective of green architecture. The direct attachment or integration of vegetation on buildings operates at both the building and the urban space level, at different intensities. By combining architectural qualities and ecological functions, what the façade is and what it can, the understanding and knowledge on ecological edges in the dense city may be optimized as well as design interface approaches linking the built environment and the nature elements.
