Carina's latest proposals
Documented research has proven that the reintroduction of vegetation into cities reduces the urban heat island effect. Cities are cooler and quieter through shading, evaporative transpiration, and the absorption of sound by green walls. Green space can help to reduce heat and combat air pollution in the urban setting.
The concept is an eco-urban network that consists of many self-managed backyards where people create a jungle-like garden of their backyards (both in elderly homes and ordinary housings) and maintain them during the summer months. There will be a lot of plants, fruits and flowers. The walls will be covered with green panels and waterfalls. There will be movable chairs, benches and tables. (A) "green igloo" placed in the backyard will provide a cooler place for sitting. The backyards will be opened daytime for anyone in the city to visit.
