The NO-STOP FOREST project proposes a new relationship between nature and humans in the Amazon region by introducing a vertically structured residential infrastructure to restore the environment and reduce urban sprawl. The rapid urbanization and population growth in the Amazon, particularly in Manaus, have led to deforestation and habitat loss for wildlife. The project draws inspiration from Archizoom’s NO-STOP CITY and features various scales of vertical gardens, including vertical farms, that can accommodate up to 3,800 units. The proposed infrastructure reduces the coverage ratio and brings nature back to life. It is located between the city and nature, creating a new relationship and blurring the boundaries. The modules’ expansion gradually reduces land occupancy and restores the wildlife, allowing for various associations and directions to be formed. The project also addresses colonialism’s historical and current impacts on the region by providing a sustainable solution for the Amazon and its growing population. The project aims to provide housing and create a social infrastructure that can be redeemed for people and other entities, including nature. Ultimately, the project aims to offer a vision for a better future in the Amazon and beyond by restoring nature, reducing urban sprawl, and creating a new relationship between humans and nature.
