Project Summary

Tree Savior - Surviving the Urban Environment

This project develops a construction solution for urban planning in tropical climates. The shading device enables young trees to grow and reach maturity before exposure to full sun, and the artificial canopy provides shade in the interim for the people of the area.

Shade and saving trees becomes a viable alternative to mechanical air conditioning, and makes outdoor spaces more comfortable for recreation and pedestrian movement.
