gardens in the air, across buildings
Why are buildings solitary and disconnected? Have you ever thought that it is strange how buildings are vertical structures, accessible only through the bottom floor?
I propose that buildings be built that are interconnected: little bridges to connect them at the third, or sixth floor, and a garden that runs across them. Every building's third floor could be a garden (open space), with trees, flowers, playing grounds, little cafes... and with all the gardens connected to each other visa little bridges. This could work best in a crowded, high density area.
Zoning could mandate that each new building reserve the third floor as a garden, with the style of the garden to be determined the by building's owners.
This way you create a green space in the middle of a busy urban area, where space is often at a premium.
