Urban Regeneration Cell


This is a study for an Urban Regeneration Cell, capable of acting as an attractor for new community life and activities in informal areas of cities.

The Urban Cells are projected for three different scales, contexts and topographies. The building utilizes contemporary technologies for sustainable construction and was conceived as part of an educational system.

It has multiple functions for the community's every day life, and is based on the idea of 3 intelligent surfaces.

One is the ground, derived from the topographical and climatic conditions. The other two surfaces are the green facade conceived as a vertical garden: one as a productive facade, and the other as an interactive surface receiving projection of images.
