When I was young, I lived in an environment full of nondescript square-shaped buildings, with very little green areas. As I grew up, I realized many cities had a very similar cityscape. When I moved to Macau nine years ago, I first noticed that the city seemed to preserve quite a number of distinctive, vintage buildings scattered by Macao peninsula, old Taipa downtown and Coloane village and, most particularly, that they were surrounded by trees. However more recently, with the rapid urbanization and lack of care, the old-charming structures have been disappearing. Last year I travelled to Tainan, in Taiwan, to visit the Anping Tree House, (an old warehouse covered with banyan trees) which amazed me with its walls interlaced with strangling roots and the warehouse rooftop of the crown. I felt completely overwhelmed by the intimate crossover between human living space and nature. Now, how much distance shall we keep from nature?
