Open Mine Pit Regeneration

Miyun, Beijing, China. The mining site was seriously exploited over the years, causing countless environmental problems, both to the land and the air. The proposal transforms the site into sunken gardens through sculpturing existing slope conditions, using plants as the strategy to prevent future pollution and to heal the land. The aim is to create a self-regeneration system which will attract species and eventually develop into a new bio- system.
