A Highrise of Homes

Residential buildings can and should be dynamic in their growth and collaborative in program; it is possible to manufacture individual units that expressly fit needs. With digital rapid building techniques such as Contour Crafting, spaces can be fabricated on demand, on location with only an interior build-out required. Units could be swapped or relocated as a prefabricated kit of parts. Together, this allows more individuals to afford tailored design, and gives a sense of ownership and specificity to their needs in high density environments. It also allows for flexibility which accommodates further community collaboration.
