Reappearance of “Mao Ci”
Roof Grass Growing Project

It is difficult to turn the Hutong areas into “green” ones, due to the narrow space and the poor environment. The challenge is now represented by finding a solution for the space utilization.

The project got the inspiration from the self-grown plants on walls and roofs. Hutongs are an ecological living environment and people reasonably use this system to create a philosophy of actions that are not interfering with the existing surroundings.

Residents of the community will be motivated to grow these plants, resulting in a better use of the space, together with an improved quality of the entire environment encased in the city.
