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
mutually beneficial.
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.
