This is plantation project in urban area of Osaka. The site is owned by a kindergarten nearby Yodo River in Osaka City. Even though there was a project planned to build apartment housing in this site, the project was cancelled and instead, a parking lot was built. Similarly around here, many old houses are demolished and parking lots are created. Although the lots have only single function, they take many spots in the city. It seems to create uninteresting and wasteful spaces in the city. This project introduces an innovative way to utilize the parking lots. We suggest creating spaces for children and the community around here to produce agricultural products and energy on the artificial ground go up to the sky, β€œThe Spiral Field.”
