The site is located in Pasadena, Los Angeles, near the rose bowl and adjacent to the freeway. In terms of the time dimension, the project is divided into three stages. Three different time nodes are set up in 2028, 2050 and 2100 to comprehensively show the evolution process of the site over time. The spatial dimension of the project is divided into four parts. Site1 attempts to use the plant’s carbon source sequestration to combat carbon dioxide emissions. To cope with the heat island effect, site2 and site3 obtained the urban model of the most suitable residential area through the simulation data. Wildlife crossing has also been set up to create contiguous habitats and reduce the impact of roads and highways.
