"‘Sub-urban Jungle’ offers a design-strategy for the strong interweaving of cultural and ecological realities necessary in the current anthropogenic situation. It’s primary aim is to shift the focus from merely creating nature-inclusive buildings to creating environments that facilitate nature-inclusive life. To do so, it takes daily lived experiences as the starting point for its design method."
