wacdesignstudio. Obus Lofts [Animation]. 2011.
A design experiment for the city of Houston, of how to redesign the city based on a future of oil and water scarcity while maintaining the core landmark of the city, its freeway system.
Inspired by Le Corbusier’s Plan Obus for Algiers of 1933-1944, a massive high-rise development will be proposed under Houston’s freeway system. This project will place several twenty first century narratives together in a proposal to rebuild sprawling American cities in the form of a new condo development.
Obus Lofts will include its own product and furniture line intended for Obus Lofts’ residents, writings, drawings, an architectural model and an animation.
