Modular Ecomorphologies

This project examines the implications of situating environmentally-responsive housing on an abandoned river-front, urban property in The Strip District neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Living machine wastewater processing was the primary environmental strategy which drove the arrangement of both living and public space across the site.

 

The housing units form a collective, interwoven circulation network and landscape in which waste processing systems and residences coexist. At times the distinction between the two is blurred to develop a codependent relationship between the occupant and machine.
