Many times in history,the blue planet has failed to maintain species diversity on land and has experienced some level of natural climate change variability.As the complex components of the ecosystem are constantly changing,it becomes difficult to maintain a dynamic balance.Ecosystems basically have mycelium roots that allow their plants to survive by converting nutrients.The mycelium is the starting point of the long chain of processes that ensure healthy planet.Mycelium can be used as building material produced with 3d printers.Design allows people to have forest ecosystems in city, which is part of nature that people take shelter the most when escaping from city.Water transmission capillaries designed during production are used to collect rain water and irrigate forests and meet water needs of building units.Water vapor released into air by gas passage system in building creates lots of rain clouds in city and brings a solution to water crisis.The increase in the rate of photosynthesis in city also reduces air pollution.


In this environment where living together is beneficial to nature and the citizens, a mutualistic life with city has been designed.The balance between nature,city and people has been dynamically preserved. In fact,a small world where nature and people can coexist is designed.
