Abstract: The paradigm shift in world view from an anthropocentric perspective to an ecological one calls for the need to improve biodiversity in Singapore. The thesis investigates architecture as a medium that synergies with nature and ecology by marrying bio-remediation urban infrastructure, with an ecological program of a Greenschool that is based on outdoor environmental education, in order to create physical linkage between two forest patches as well as the social connection between public and biodiversity. The thesis explores how in regenerating biodiversity in our urban environment, the “heart-ware (inculcating ecological awareness and stewardship)” must be developed together with the “hardware (connecting fragmented landscapes with close-loop living machine technology) in order to provide an alternative co-species development.
