SITE ISSUES
From the urban studiesdone on Kampung Attap,
it is known to be one of 
the few lungs left of Kuala
Lumpur due to its
abundance of greens.
Untapped potential
of its natural environment.
Lack of public squaresfor socializing.Quietness that causes
insecurity of safety.Generally, the site is easy for
public access. Due to its
abundant greens, itssurrounding temperature israther low and cooling.
However, its lack of public
squares for social activities
makes the site quiet and
peaceful most of the time.
WHAT IS ......
SUSTAINABLE ART?
Sustainable art, also known as
environmental art, is a method of doing art that puts the environmentahead of the aesthetics. This ispracticed because the artist isaware of the arising environmentalissues and is concerned about it.Thus, the artist chooses to createart in a way that either it reclaimsor reuses the environmentaldamages.
Concept:
“Nothing, Anything; Something, Everything.”

EPHEMERAL ART
By Andy Goldsworthy 
 He regards his creationsas transient, or ephem-eral. He photographs eachpiece once right after he
makes it. His goal is to
understand nature bydirectly participating innature as intimately as he
can. He generally works
with whatever comes tohand: twigs, leaves,stones, snow and ice,reeds and thorns.
