Housing The Next 10 Million (Competition)California, U.S.A.
California housing trends are headed towards disaster with increasing water scarcity, tillable land scarcity, farmland scarcity and influx of residents. This study looks at the problem from a larger context, investigating the use of marginal farmland for use, and creating a new density to support public transportation. On the micro level, the design uses the most abundant parts of California – sunshine and dirt – to create the housing units that are low in ecological footprint.
