In 2010 Salzburg did an experiment: transform St Julien Street in less than 24h from a car space to a pedestrian friendly space. We need more demonstrations like this!

Eco-Systems - William Lee

Many walls in our towns and cities can be viewed as blank, featureless canvases that could provide excellent opportunities to create living designs. This was the inspiration that led me to develop an exterior tile cladding system, which controls and manipulates plant growth as a medium to create pattern. The tiles, which sit on top of existing living wall systems, aims to create visual harmony by allowing vegetation to better integrate into the urban environment.

Seeded concrete - William lee
In collaboration with a materials scientist and Shire Green Roof Substrates Ltd, I have developed a biodegradable ‘seeded’ concrete, which further combines architectural design with nature. Creating specially developed concrete material, with seeds embedded within it, provides a unique opportunity to welcome nature within architectural design. As well as provide a solution to lost habitats of native wildlife and flower species, together with getting people to reconnect with nature in an otherwise ‘baron’ landscape for plants. With a similar consistency of ‘regular’ concrete, seeds start to germinate once water is added to the material. Plant growth through the substance slowly breaking down the material, which decomposes into soil. Becoming completely biodegradable.
