    Location: Ringlinglow , Sh e eldF unction: A rborist training centre

    Introd uction:U rban land scape pU rban land scape provid es a lot of benits. It increases urban environm ent, safty, h appyness, etc. A rborist plays a signicant role in im proving urban land scape. T h e project is to transfer th e im portance of arborist as a city d e-veloper. T h e site I ch ose is an enclosed space w ith trees. Instead of d estroy th e nature, all th e trees are re-served and consid ered as a contributor to th e build ing and people.

    In ord er to avoid negative im pact to nature and public life, th e build ing facad e, orientation, form , etc are consid -ered as w ell.

  • T ree benetsA s a com lex space for both ind ustry, consum ption and serving, m od ern city is aim ing to balance th e h um an d em and and sustainability. T rees are playing signicant role in urban d eveloping as it provid es a lot of benets, not only for th e environm ent but also for people. B y search ing th e relation-sh ip betw een trees and city, I realised th e im portance of arborist. T h eir responsibility of m aintaining trees insures th at h um an, nature and city could coexist in a h ealth y and sustainable w ay.

    T h e gure on th e left illuT h e gure on th e left illustrates w h at people and city can benet from trees. In term s of environm ental aspect, trees can provid e cooler air, w h ich d e-creases urban h eat. F resh air is also prod uced by th e trees. T h ey also bring ecological environm ent th at contribute to w ater system , air purication. T h e urban space w ith land scape provid es a m ore com fortable living environm ent. It resolves crim inal issue, increases h appyness, belongingness and safety.

Ind oor teach ing is based on biological course, m eeting , library, etc. H alf-open space is aim ed to provid e place for sim ple training lik e w earing equipm ent, m ach ine operation, etc. T h e open space is for ad vanced stud ents to h ave practice w h ich need s m ore space, lik e tree clim bing, w ood saw ing, team w ork , etc.

D uring the night, the lighting from inside of the house goes through the fac ade and c reates a brighter surrounding spac e. It reveals the ac tivities that happened behind the fac ade. The sem itransparent m aterial insures the privac y as well. B y the huge urban light, F urnac e H ill c ould have a brighter atm osphere and inc rease the c om m unic ation between people and the streets.

    The feThe feature of polyc arbonate not only provides transparent fac ade but also c reates soft light that is required for work shop. The light is ltered and soften through the m aterial. It avoids heavy shadow that generated by direc t sun-light. The double height spac e on the rst oor dec reased the noise m ade by sounder test and work .
