In this paper, we propose an interactive breathing shelter which could regulate the breath of city and its dwellers by influencing their breath speed to relieve their stress. An interactive urban shelter expresses the relationship between city and its dwellers through the action of breathing. In Schrödinger's book What is Life?, he originally stated that 'what an organism feeds upon is negative entropy' and that 'the essence of metabolism, in its survival period successfully ridding themselves of organisms, must have all the entropy.’ Cities increase in entropy due to pollution, traffic jams and information overload and so on. Meanwhile, these issues prompt stress in citizens. Breathing is the simplest way to counter the increase of entropy – people are noticeably relaxed and find it easier to concentrate after deep breathing. This city shelter thus aims to transform anxiety to relief – you breathe the city and the city also breathes back at you, in a mutual beneficial connection.
