Every city has at least a slope. Why don't take advantage of the landscape to minimize the use of cars in the city and improve people health? By adding slides, it could be possible to change people's behaviors and the way they move in the city. Depending on the location of the slides, it could be a time saver for people living in hilly cities such as San Fransisco, Lausanne, Quebec, Rio de Janeiro just to name a few. The Sliding Staircase could change the rythm of simply doing the task of walking. It could split it by bringing short periods of fun through a transportation routine.
The “Conscious Shower” is an alternative to reduce the amount of water spent in the shower in a fun way. To do that, a water meter has to be installed in the shower. It’s necessary to set up an amount of water enough for a shower (eg. 40 liters). So it will be possible to check in a screen how much water is being spent during the shower.
What’s the need?
Connecting with nature as a Living and not only an existing being.
This ideas will help educate and create a connect between us humans and Mother Nature through trees. Deforestation is on the rise in many countries. Nations are working hard to cut down pollution and stop global warming. This simple gesture is one step in building a relationship between an individual and our planet. Going one step ahead and asking the common man to help plant a little sapling.
Concept for Fun theory
There are Trees most often planted on the side walk.
There are four static bikes which when peddled will rotate each of the four rings with the benches on them. I want to address the issue of the bad connection between the gardens with the road passing through them, but also wanted to bring fun back into everyday life. there will be monitors at both points so that there is a visual connection between the two spaces.
