A Shared Breath

Project details

A Shared Breath is located in Camden Town underground station, London. It focuses on the environmental health inequalities caused by air pollution. The problems are caused by two factors. The first is the uneven distribution of air pollution due to the unequal distribution of traffic density. Secondly, depending on their conditions, school children and office workers are more vulnerable to air pollution. Therefore, the target population are primary school students, office workers and tourists. Design scope is determined according to their daily activities.

The first strategy is to remove or reduce the volume of traffic, change the direction of cars, and make the density of cars evenly distributed. The second strategy is to plant vegetation to absorb as much air pollution as possible. The third strategy is the use of microalgae artificial trees.

Vegetation alone cannot absorb all the air pollution. Using microalgae extracted from the Regent’s Canal next to the project site, a number of tiny topographies have been designed for rainwater harvesting, meeting the needs of the microalgae reactor while making the design more resilient.

This rendering shows rainwater harvesting under undulating terrain. When it is not raining, the changing terrain can become a space for people to play. In addition, the site shows a slide printed in 3D using a new material.

The site is located in front of an underground station and demonstrates the collection of rainwater under changing topography. The site also shows the waste bins printed in 3D from a new material.

The shell of the microalgae artificial tree is hollowed out through glass, which allows rainwater to be collected and adds to the playfulness of light and shadow for the users.
