Epifanio de los Santos Avenue in Philippines or more commonly known by its acronym EDSA is a major thoroughfare of Manila. Millions of people pass by the major highway, slowly transforming the image and function of the adjacent spaces along EDSA. People using the major highway experiences severe traffic congestion daily, together with massive emission of carbon dioxide and the street chaos having inconsistent street levels as well as informal street vendors. It created a conflict within the framework of the place where EDSA does not support the areas around it anymore.

ASDEH seeks to change the future of EDSA Kamuning area in the coming 2030. It reconnects the relationship of the local area and EDSA, to support livelihood and to give inspiration to the people. The remodeled EDSA is formed in accordance with the people within the community by analyzing the needs and interest of its stakeholders. The project gives opportunity to the informal settlers to work in the aquaponics building, and the products they produce will be provided as resources to the residents of Kamuning therefore joining the people together with the place.
