Integrating Greenery into Urban Public Space with Canopy Structures.

Today large number of people leave in urban areas and it is estimated that over 68 percent of people in the world will be living in cities ten years to come. Increasing population in urban areas tends to reduce the amount of green spaces due to new buildings and infrastructures that accommodate new inhabitants. The purpose of the thesis is to critically look into ways of densifying urban public space with greenery through the use of canopy structure systems. The study tends to look into various design iteration of canopy structure systems that can support and integrate greenery for public benefit.
