However necessary they are for modern transportation, highways have a huge negative impact on the ecosystems and wildlife in areas where they’re built. Designed for every major intersection, the Green Circle architectural concept aims to vertically restore space otherwise lost to highways.
The twisting structure serves as both an elevated garden and sanctuary for animals like birds which can safely nest without disruption. Each Green Circle is designed to capture usable rainwater and harness solar energy to power an integrated pump system.
