A Students' Design Competition as a
Conversational Platform in developing Urban Strategies
As Spring breeze blows, 'dandelion' seed parachutes glide by the wind - finding new lands and individually settling their own growths.
The species' evolutionary adaptation allows maximum
dispersal without limiting to only nearby distances of the mother plant.
In various cultures, dandelions resemble hope and wishes of overcoming challenges.
The blooming of urbanization in capitals have becoming most saturated as ever in history. Counter movements of extending growths since early development has emerged a disciplinary concept of
