Material Mosaic Triplex Dwellings
1 Part Alive + 1 Part Energy Producer
50% Living Home Design: An alternate proposal that uses mixed traditional prefab construction with living surfaces.
A mosaic of materials, components, and spaces evolved for this dwelling, asserting that nature and people are
The built-form sanctions life at all levels. Soil pockets serve gardens, native species, and the water cycle. Minute
channels within the grid framework collect and direct rainfall. The mass-flows from life within the home feed ponds
and nutrient producing compost. Participating in the logic of the home, the people determine their consumption
patterns to ensure that outputs become inputs for other processes.
