New order of nature - FredericiaC

New Order of Nature represents an radical new urban development technique. It discards of the privilege formerly assigned to buildings and infrastructure and instead gives priority to green amenity values in the temporary landscape introducing a contemporary resilient framework that attracts people from day one. Nature can be moved, scaled and assigned different functionalities depending on the demands which the users have, and as such the urban space becomes valuable even before the buildings are designed.
