    Our environment is deteriorating at an alarming rate, and the only way out to save it from ultimate doom and annihilation is a change in our lifestyles. People are slowly realizing the need to save our environment and are coming up with new ways to protect it and nourish it for a greener tomorrow. One such effort is the design for the Urban Formation by Wendy W Fok, Jasmin Dieterle, Jenny Chow, Sue Biolsi and Vasilis Raptis. This project will change the way the corner of 104the Avenue and 152nd street in Surrey, Vancouver, Canada looks, feels and operates.

    The Urban Formation project aims to give the chosen site an environment friendly face lift, converting it into a place for recreation with various leisure activities and a rain and solar energy generating power plant. A buffer system to reduce street noise is also part of the project, with re-landscaping in mind. The plan includes theatre space, recreational areas, park lighting and space for cultural and common entertainments too. Surrey will soon have a green corner to boast about, if things go as planned that is.
