SITE ISSUES
From the urban studies done 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 squares for socializing. • Quietness that causes insecurity of safety.

LOCATION PLAN
N.T.S
Day view from jogging path, showing on-going activities.

View 1: The site from Lorong Belfield.

View 2: The abundance of green on site.

SITE ANALYSIS:
Strategic location for public access • Bicycle track • Jogging path • Treehouse node • Carpark nearby • Shuttle bus & R.I.T services available • Main road- Lorong Belfield Untapped potential of the nature • Lowers down surrounding temperature • Enhances the landscape of the building • Acts as noise absorber from main road Generally, the site is easy for public access. Due to its abundant greens, its surrounding temperature is rather low and cooling. However, its lack of public squares for social activities makes the site quiet and peaceful most of the time.

INTRODUCTION
WHAT IS ......

TEABAG ART
Gifted designers Yuree S. Lim and Jieun Yang created these tea coasters as a way to reuse dripping tea bags to create beautiful artwork. You simply place the tea bag on the little coaster and feel the Zen as you watch it create something beautiful to enjoy.

Project Goal:
• Making art the tool to catalyze people with the environment, teaching them methods to a sustainable lifestyle.

Green Art Center?
The newly proposed Green Art Center at Kampung Attap is a place for various art activities such as painting, craft, photography, building sculptures & installation art be carried out. However, the ultimate intention is to do art in a sustainable manner. The newly proposed Green Art Center is dedicated to ‘green’ artist who are already practicing sustainable art, giving them the opportunity to educate and nurture the society about the importance of sustainability through art.

Due to the fact that sustainability is a balance between social, economy and the environment, the goal is to also promote equality amongst the community, eliminating discriminations.

EPHEMERAL ART

By Andy Goldsworthy

Design Goal:
• • To design a living example of a sustainable building, in order to further motivate and nurture the practice of eco-friendly activities. To design a place that is friendly and welcoming to the public, eliminating social hierarchy, bringing people together to appreciate sustainable art with the objective of equality. Although this building is designed with a humble approach, there is a need to design for an iconic element in order to portray its image as an art centre.

WHAT IS ......

SUSTAINABLE ART?
Sustainable art, also known as environmental art, is a method of doing art that puts the environment ahead of the aesthetics. This is practiced because the artist is aware of the arising environmental issues and is concerned about it. Thus, the artist chooses to create art in a way that either it reclaims or reuses the environmental damages.

He regards his creations as transient, or ephemeral. He photographs each piece once right after he makes it. His goal is to understand nature by directly participating in nature as intimately as he can. He generally works with whatever comes to hand: twigs, leaves, stones, snow and ice, reeds and thorns.
