Urban oasis / New roof form

Urban oasis

Heat absorption is a big challenge to the high temperature and humidity area. The design concept is to make the roof into a useful device that absorbs heat and reuses. The air purification filter system absorbs heat and converts it into energy to supply the entire house. It not only effectively cool the temperature down but also saves energy. The overall device is based on the bionic design; the fish's body structure is used as the roof form that changes in response to temperature, weather, or daily life is created.
