Like many other places, Philadelphia is suffering from severe mental illness strikes. Callowhill (Spring Garden St, Philadelphia), a place of art and abandoned industrial land, is experimented with a tailored infill nature for physical breath and mental relief. The project “Hilling” is born as a 3d printed artificial nature serving for mental healing programs via Eco-art therapy.
Eco-art therapy is a pioneer method facilitating mental wellness through the creation of artwork via the observation and enjoyment of nature. With the support of machine learning such as AI perceptions and style GAN generations, the project is constructed as a new form of natural destination for the neighborhood to alleviate and treat mental illness.
The forms obtained have been twinned with landscape features that transform the abandoned land into a new constellation of programs including art-workshops, galleries, and classrooms. The ambiguous position between nature and architecture makes it unique. As nature, it is occupiable and conquerable, while as an architecture, inhabitable spaces unfold the mysterious natural features for visitors to meditate and relieve themselves.
