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.
