Archiol Competition has organized this first edition of the Landscape design competition to understand the importance of forest for people living in cities and towns.
“Our forests offer much more than just beautiful landscapes and wildlife. Each one has a different story to tell.”
– Raveena Tandon
Human health is inevitably linked to forest health; time spent in forests has been shown to have a positive benefit on conditions including mental health, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and respiratory concerns Forest are very important for the climate, as forests are the largest storehouses of carbon after the oceans, they can help protect people and nature from the consequences of global warming. Nature makes people healthy and happy, but unfortunately, we have encroached green space in our increasingly urbanised living environment. By planting a Tiny Forest, you can help bring nature back into our busy urban life.
“As an architect, you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.”
- Norman Foster

Martin Luther King Jr.
