element of nature, in between buildings

It's been my keen interest how the architecture can be generated with the elements of nature in urban scene. In both projects mentioned above the architectural design are created with the elements of nature such as water and vegetation in full extent, and they are to respond to the project theme as well as to link the various surrounding urban context. By building a new volume we are not only introducing a new inhabitable spaces inside but reshaping or altering the open spaces in between the surrounding buildings structure and the newly built architecture. it will affect the scale that you would experience and daily life activities around you. Instead of placing the landscape elements around or in front of the building it is our attempt to fully integrate or let the elements of nature define and shape the architecture so to link the urban context and offer spatial experience that is rich in texture and appealing to the human senses.
