25’000 MQ HOUSING

The concept was to create a building as big as the perimeter allows, with a huge and wild green space inside. The building works on contrasts between dense city and the void. The height of construction follows the surrounding buildings. It is composed of modular blocks, linked by stairs. There are 23 different typologies of apartments, from 50 m2 up to 350 m2. Every apartment has two different atmospheres. The side toward city is closed and protected. The other side dialogs with the court, where green grows in a chaotic way. A sort of mysterious place where mind can escape from the rigid city. The dark stair is the transition element. A both simple and complex scheme for housing.
