This project is a morphological study based on self-organizing biological systems. At its pure essence, it is a topological surface that links infrastructure, ecology, and architecture to articulate a new and unworldly environment. As the continuous surface bifurcates it creates a network of flowing circulation paths for pedestrians, trams and cars in addition to ebbing interior pavilion spaces, temporary food markets, pop-up retail shops, time-share housing and, finally, outdoor landscapes and parks.
