Building like interface

Sustainable development is the main purpose of the project. There are three key elements about sustainability:

  • Connectivity: platforms, road network continuity and visual connectivity.
  • Geometry: after analyzing the buildings around and their construction features, it is developed a 3.75×3.75 fixed net (for floor and elevation). This geometry generates a arranged and industrial construction system that allows timber arcades and structural rigid panels.
  • Recycling: life-cycle of the building and building materials used.

This three concepts raise connectivity: the concept “the greater connectivity is, the greater sustainability is” is the main tenet of any ecosystem.
