Concept & Competition
The experimental house for any place or owner.
Environmental sustainability in all decisions.
Steel, wood, glass, thermo-acoustic panels.
Renewable energies, solar, photovoltaic.
Water reuse, vegetation, shades.
Propose an ecologically integrated system.
Portable, connectable 36-m2 modules.
Comprise the habitable space, single-family or collective.
Or the temporary, emergency workplace.
Horizontal or vertical, community in transformation.
Transitory just like life, eternal just like lightness and time.
