Nodeul Dream Island leads with the idea of Neverland in mind, and is designed as “a utopia where nature and serenity are abundant.” Here, it is hoped that environmental economy, and socially sustainable practices can be utilized to create a space to transform the dense urban fabric.
The island is designed using a phased development process, so that its independent cells “will propagate with cultural, ecological, and cohesive principles, creating its own infrastructure and footprint.” This gives Green Dot an unique opportunity for adaptable architecture to take over on the island.
This way “there is no forced development, but rather development that is community-led and that has social significance. As the cells grow and form clusters, the activities, recycling, energy production, urban farming, and connections become stronger.
