A rapid population growth is expected for the first half of the 21st century will lead to partial destruction of the natural ecosystems. In that context cities have spread due to the actual construction method. Although many of these ecosystems are of use to face some major challenges – sea level rise and scarcity of resources. unlike the actual built environment. This results into the need to provide alternative construction methods for different settlements. As a solution for Hangzhou, an elevated construction above the ground to absorb sea level rise increase is proposed. Moreover, by making the construction translucent and permeable to the natural cycles of earth will enable the recovery of the wetlands that protect us. Furthermore, the construction is supplied with different ‘inputs’ to enable the habitability and cleaning of the wetlands, using its waste to encourage self-sufficiency.
