At the very center of the Munich historical urban structure, the lack of green islands and vegetation increase the local temperature oft the city.
M28 is aiming to counter high temperature within one of those heat islands and simultaneously providing ecological performance. Built ontop of an existing electrical infrastructure, a lattice-structure is grown over by climbing plants and vines to create aprotective volume for bird nisting places. Additional infrastructure, water tanks and fog system as well is positioned within the roof structure. Through shading and evapo-transpiration of the plants, the structure enables the reduction of summer heat while providing a new vegetative center fort the urban courtyard.
