" green for the future "

Since the coexistence of nature in the city became in demand, several techniques have been groped. However, the current city is surrounded by the buildings, which make difference to the ideal state. In addition to cost, maintenance, technical problems, environment and the people, it is necessary to think on approaching Green for the future.

In recent years, green wall might be one of the methods in effective environmental redevelopment. The consumption of energy is anticipated for minimizing the amount of heat by covering the walls with green. This can be a new system attached to the construction, or it may give alternative usage in open spaces and the industrial parks. In many years of enduring the constant approach, not only exploring but also it may offer huge opportunities to the small parts, which seldom attracts attention until now. It will lead to new discovery to pursue possibility in every point of the city of the building. We are in need of solution for the problems and new approach in order to improve the city.

Green in the city still has many problems in its efficiency, yet extends on having several visions by facing each problems while considering the other facts. At first, we create city that surrounded by Green, where we can live together with nature, and it comes with the future comfort. For example, a view you see from the train on each day, such usual view may change a lot through this competition.

We request to the young generation who bears the future, to consider the coexistence of nature. Making this opportunity to think on Green for the city may give us a solution for improvement. With the free way of thinking, we urge for ideas to new city image while appreciating the coexistence of nature.
