In natural systems, a corridor, is an area of habitat connecting wildlife populations separeted by human activities or structures. In urban fabrics, they are also places of movement, and generally connect but also disconnect.
We will look beyond conventional notions of urban design to modes of ecology and other knowledge bases to consider natural systems as a central urban design strategy, and the ground for more than human use. We will begin with the repair of natural systems that will at the same time also act as ‘urban’ infrastructure. 
Through a strategy of removal of built form to create an open space of natural sustems, the existing built environment will be redefined by the relocation of the removed buildings and programs within existing areas and the new relationships therefore generated with open space. We will work on a macro and micro scale to redefine large open space while at the same time elements such as building entries, windows and canopies.
