To cope with urban heat island effect and lacking trees canopy coverage in cities cramped context, on top of the existing two-level car park, Orchard Jenga proposed to plant not only trees but editable vegetations vertically which cast healthy shadow for open public space underneath and produce organic fresh foods for the nearby Queen Victoria Market by applying the technology from adjacent University of Melbourne research centre. Covered by the transparent water tank, the unique facade allows semi visual connection from in and out by acoustically reflecting and refract the light when it passes through, standing out as an environment protect sign without a word.
