Population growth is a problem that has been effecting China on social, economic, and political levels for years. Direct consequences can be seen everywhere, even in the destruction of ecosystems. Take the wetlands of hangzhou for example, a place whose current construction is insufficient for its needs. Here, and all around the world, density of the urban fabric will continue to increase, and the use of the existing tectonics will end up destroying their environments entirely.
As a solution to this, Gabriel Munoz Moreno has proposed ‘re-generator’, a method that intends to organize, distribute, and expand as as cells throughout the city. This unit is elevated above the ground, to make way for the recovery of the terrain. To do so, it should be translucent and permeable, without disrupting the natural cycles of the sun, air, and water, which allows the natural regeneration of any living organism community.
Furthermore, the module is supplied with different inputs to make possible the habitability and the cleaning of the wetlands, using its waste to encourage self-sufficiency. These mimic different parts of natural cells and enables the individual pieces to be living quarters, scheme in constant change and growth, regenerating the ecosystems.
