We have been collaborating with urban Edenist and Landscape Designer Lily Kwong.  Currently, we are carrying out a study at Lily’s biophilic ‘Summer in Winter’ installation at the Cadillac House Gallery from November 15, 2018, until January 15, 2019.  We are particularly interested in discovering the dynamic of stress level and emotional empathy of ‘Summer in Winter’ visitors.
