RESTARTING SUCCESSION:Ecological Restoration of Mountain Edges
2016 Tongji University, Shanghai, China Group Work with Wen YANG & Wenxin DENG Studio: Ecological Planting Planning
Boundary usually has the most diversified landscapes but also manifests as vulnerable under intensive disturbance. In the face of this challenge, the Jinan Forested Region, located at the intersection of Jinan and the southern mountain area, has seen an ongoing fragmentation due to the increasing timber demands and the unguided development of real estate since the 1950s. Nowadays, the fragmentation is confronting the region with an urgent issue of biodiversity decrease, which exerts a detrimental influence on the natural succession of the forest ecosystem. Addressing the succession crisis in this project, we attempted to deal with the problem of how to restart the succession through planting planning as a positive intervention, how to balance the environmental and social needs.
