Design Team: Pitupong Chaowakul with Korakot Meesathien and Sujinda Khawkam

Ru-Yerb (inverse in Thai of Love-You) is a conceptual project of ASA Change 2013 aiming to address the contemporary urban problem in Thailand, in our case the electrical lines and pedestrian trees. With our long frustration on the city’s easy attitude on cutting down trees that are taller than electrical lines, we come up with an idea that allow the lines to go through the trees more safely. Ru-Yerb is a double skin insulator in which the inner skin shield group of wires from touching tree leaves while the porous outer skin attached to tree branches allows small animals access for inhabiting. By creating network of safe passages for wires to go through city trees, big city in Thailand will be able to see big trees growing along side with skyscrapers.
