Alley Garden / concept for public spaces

Alley Garden
Alley Garden

Alley-garden is a modular architecture that solves urban problems.

Fine dust, the biggest problem in the city, comes from the exhaust of automobiles. It is stagnated among tall buildings, causing air pollution. To solve this problem, parasite architecture is used to create a space that acts as a filter between buildings.

Alley-garden uses local alleys to provide space for growing plants. You can manage your own garden, which is hard to see in the city. You can spend time with nature, eat your own vegetables which are good for your physical and mental health.
