In order to extract the intensity of the connected, non-articulated, present or absent, the dwell would intensify the necessity in developing the articulated places. The dwell intensifier blends the interrogation of of the natural complex ecosystem with the emergent presence of places where the productivity increases. Integrating the productivity of dwelling to intensify awareness to less consume at higher productivity. The reminder would offer to these dwellings the production of places where the architectural three-dimensional image becomes the product of instant simultaneous perceptions, at the boundary between history and contemporary – the product of spatial awareness.

In other words is the risk problems which classifies scientific assessments in attracting the attention to these features where the impact on global environment would picture the alteration of habitats.

Buildings, parks, or a place where the aesthetic qualities have somehow alliterated the fluidity between habitat and environment. Buildings, and any form of the buit environment imply strategies in programming the global awareness on the necessity to survival, connecting the built habitat to biodiversity. The specificity of these environments would gain the environmental awareness through the energy they consume over their life time in specific climatic conditions.

The necessity in dealing with specific climatic conditions, would imply generative forms of innovation in programmatic requirements which articulate the connection between habitat and environment.
As for strategies being adopted in blending the intensity of dwellings into the necessity of articulating places more and more, the distinction between dwells and environment would create a seamless extensive high-density landscape incorporating both sides, as Ken Yang (2006) mentioned, the environment and the dwell should be regarded as a dynamic continuum acting together as a whole.

The plasticity of landscape would transfer the formal fluidity into patterns where the seamless distortion of the environment would create the articulation with biodiversity. The link where the perception of landscape would re-establish the link with environment. Species which share the same would provide essential fertile places for interbreeding. The verticality of Centre Point would inspire diversity in emerging dwellings engaging the high-breeding coefficient of the tower to aspire less energy consume, such as light and oxygen.

Empty offices which used to host the formal activities are now articulated into formal reproduction of the environment. Spatially unused places should impose potential in building continuity with the environment.

The main points in articulating the image of the Centre Point is offering stunning views around the city from the top floors of the tower, and as it is being visible from Kensington Gardens alleyways. The peak of the tower would aspire conceptual landscape, plasticity intersecting vertical geometry. The plasticity would generate the connection with environment, it would blend the whole continuum.

The peak of the tower would host spaces for conferences and offices, moveable spaces which permit to create internal fluid walls through floor plans, accommodating the needs of the conference, or the needs of the office. The system is design through the floor plate offering the capacity to automatically move the walls in accordance with the incoming capacity or layout. The pivots of the walls are design to transfer the kinetic energy exercised on the surface floor into fluid walls.

The visual quality of the garden and the surrounding views, indulge the perception of the space with inspiring natural trees placed between tall vertical columns. Inspiring fluid water flows which ring the top and the bottom floor, transferring Centre Point into beautifully enriched three floor garden. Fluid alleyways intersect and join at the margin, where the stunning view of London is offering a relaxing atmosphere.

Enriched habitat-able spaces implemented with contemporary life style, a style specifically design to incorporate the need for survival within environment. The green technology has provided tools in using places more efficient in energy consumption and minimal usage of raw material.

Implementing technological modified materials, which increase the potential in recycling the air and the energy used throughout the building, providing to the Centre Point building the breeding mechanism, engaging the building into becoming the civic place within its interior qualities.

The civic place becomes the tool of the environment, it breeds into the Centre Point building, imposing potential in becoming the environmental link itself. The interior qualities of the building are transgressing the visual complexity of the natural environment into its structural shape.

The rectangular grid of the fa├žade becomes the complexity of a natural spring; water flowing gently through crisp rocks. The effect has been implemented into the ring which connects the floor plates between levels, to offer the sensation of natural landscape within its interior space.
The interior qualities of Centre Point becomes the natural internal landscape, the space which relaxes the breeding, by providing to the ecosystems patterns to regenerate the quality of interior air, as well as improving the carbon footprint released by the building.

The results in developing the link with the environment impose potential in building continuity between other parts of the city, as buildings get tired of the systems in which have been created as corporations fail into interacting with the emerging market.

Centre Point would attract the attention of the iconic building which used to scrape the London’s sky. A model in dwelling which articulates and breeds again into Central London.
The civic space of ecological intensity, where the modes of dwelling become the product of rejuvenating the need for survival and for style, visually rich and technological enriched with possibilities in engaging into being the main development in contemporary cities.
