A critique on the abuse of “superficial green” and “sustainable technology” in contemporary architecture and city planning.

To go beyond imaging symbols or ornaments of “green” and seek a correlation between urban dwellers and the high-density environments that eventually lead to renewed ecologies in cities.

Identify fabrics among the preconditioned urbanism and deploy architectural interventions of various scales that, hopefully, will induce a series of “green disturbance” that grows from within the dense city.
