CO-IN: Student Cooperation Initiative
I always prioritized the experiences of those who would use the space when first developing ideas for the project. The core of humanity lies in the connection between people and the environment, and I aimed to create an experience that serves as a reminder of this bond. In an increasingly concrete world, both people and the environment suffer, necessitating a cultivation of awareness for the future of nature. To support my concept of containment, I sought to generate an organic design allowing individuals to escape the campus environment. This led to a collaboration with vegan and botanical societies, with the TEMA Foundation as a contributor. The workshops will focus on terrarium designs and vegan snacks, emphasizing the importance of nature's preservation. The central tree's orientation serves as a reminder that nature remains at the core of humanity's evolutionary cycle.
