Applying Colored Paper Material into Landscape Architecture

This is a redevelopment project for an urban park in Galveston, Texas, USA. Every year, Galveston floods, causing huge losses to the locals. After flooding, the existing urban park is always a mass. In this project, we use a variety of colored paper as landscape architecture material to revitalize the urban park. The proposed park's main landscape elements, such as benches, sculptures, interactive structures, columns, and so on, are made of colored paper. The use of colored paper as a construction material has the following advantages: 1. Low-cost material (compared with using other landscape materials with the same function, it can save a lot of cost). 2. Psychotherapy. It aids in the recovery of people's moods following disasters, particularly for children. 3. Easy assemble and remove, allowing community members to collaborate and improve community cohesion. 4. Environmentally friendly (use recycled paper and natural pigments). 5. Aesthetic value. 6. The value of color education. It is good for color-combination ability training. 7. Attract tourists and promote tourism development. This project is supported by the "Double High" Program for Liberal Arts Construction at Tsinghua University.
