Building Bold - Submission #16
Going Massive is an idea that uses Wood as an inherent material of the construction system & also the primary element of architectural design & user interaction.
Varying combinations of floor plates in plan & section can create either 2 & 1 bed apartments or 3 storey 4/5 bed apartments. Publicly accessible buildings provide the welcome gesture, attracting people into a central linear courtyard along with a rooftop linear park & community pods.
The system can be produced locally, giving real meaning to sustainability, thru job creation & environmental aspects, whilst creating a natural bond between building & users, adding to a sense of ownership.
