  7. 7. Heat Island effect = Reduced air quality
  8. 8. www.p lant u p .n et .au Are plants the answer?
  9. 9. Plants are good for you. Plant treatments - Reductions in negative -feeling scores: • Anxiety -37% • Anger -44% • Depression -58% • Fatigue -38% • Confusion -30% • Total negativity-65% • Overall stress -50% Professor Margaret Burchett University of Technology Sydney www.p lant u p .n et .au
  10. 10. • Reduce Heat Island effect • Reduce Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) • Benzene,Toluene,Ehlbenzene, Xylene • Reduces Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide • Give back Oxygen. www.p lant u p .n et .au Plants improve air quality
  11. 11. Benefits • Green roofs and Greenwalls mitigate urban heat island effect • Lower energy consumption and Green house Gas emissions • control stormwater run-off • reduce sound reflection and transmission • lower heating and cooling costs • as well as sustain local wildlife and increase biodiversity • Improvement of health and well-being www.p lant u p .n et .au

From the ground, however, several large spherical elements are visible. Located within these elements are a planetarium and rainforest. Also, circular skylights are distributed over the surface of the roof, allowing natural light and ventilation into the spaces below. California native greenery is used to keep maintenance low.

Influenced by Korean paintings, the garden will contain reflecting pools, lotus ponds, pebble beds, and bamboo groves. The fluid shapes of the building, lacking sharp angles and fuse with the garden to create an organic feel.

  30. 30. www.p lant u p .n et .au Aptly named, this BIG creation in Taiwan looks like a cube-shaped black hole out of a sci-fi movie. Recessions throughout the building might give the impression of a portal to another world but in actuality lead to open areas that allowing people to walk through. BIG's futuristic creation will not be barren: on top of the 57-m-high building will be a grove of trees encircling a rooftop performance area, which will provide a naturally cooled public park.
