"Our project is a call to reactivate these forgotten – yet essential to inhabitate the world – links to the ecosystems through geography. In order to do so, the project analysis the gradient of intensities of land use, from the wilder to the most domestic, and tries to manage connections between these two polarities. It relies on the ability of ecosystems to manage themselves in free evolution, creating new perspective of comfort, joy, and use for Humans."
