The aim of this scheme is to foster new ways of thinking about the contemporary habitat. Envisaged as a floral based system, the project suggests a home-living/housing device resting on two petal-units. The first rigid one houses the circulation area while the second one, more flexible and with variable dimension, defines the living space. The latter is articulated through a large dorsal element functioning at the same time as furnishing element and mobile partition. The 90-degree rotation of the central “spine” allows different home-settings through an either longitudinal or transversal breaking up, depending on the case.
The planning proposal aims to create a scenery “that transforms itself” depending on the moment, the time of the year or the personal interests in daily life. One space or two, at the same time. Two for one.
On an urban level, the scheme sets an height challenge for itself. The vertical combination of the 70 and 40 square metres overlapping and out-of-axis units results in a bunch structure around tower-shaped elements that function as central core and can be arranged irregularly in terms of both density and height whilst also being able to redefine some central or peripheral areas of the city.
