MA work

I am designing modular structures, which can be covered with ivy and rapidly deployed into urban areas. Ivy is a plant that works efficiently at purifying pollutants from the air. The structures are made with metal and built as an intervention, close to highly frequented roads. Ivy will clean the pollutants from the air and bring green to the city.
