    I see current suburban housing as being inefficient, both in regards to energy use and space planning. Therefore I have been condensed the typical suburban sprawl into smaller clusters that allows better use of resources and is more suited to their local environment. In this case, Houston, TX.

    By clustering the homes, I’m able to strategically cover under one solar “umbrella”, which in the Texas sun both saves energy and generates energy. The shade provided keeps homes out of the strong midday sun, keeping them cool. The structure’s solar panels then generate energy, supplemented by additional wind powered turbines, that is returned to the units below. The result is a suburban block of power generation and power use that is attuned to seasonal need.

    Programmatically, the shade structure also alters the traditional use of the “backyard”. Whereas typically during the summer, the outside temperatures remain so hot as to be unbearable, the backyard is an unusable space for most of the day. By re-configuring the units underneath the structure, open space is created that is both cool and airy, allowing residents outside space usable all year long. The densification of units therefore creates more usable open space than if each unit was spread out as in traditional suburban planning.

    Ultimately, the relationship explored in this thesis between liveable space and energy space is one that can be adapted to a variety of climates and that may one day change how the suburb is viewed as a place of waste to a place of renewal.

    The project deals with rhythm and the sequencing of movement. Spatially, this rhythm is interpreted as a series of volumes which create a pattern of larger and smaller repeated spaces. Programmatic and environmental conditions modify this pattern to create individual nuances and accents that further expand upon the essential rhythm of the building.

    Part1. Dynamic organs. The first sequence will be to develop a synthetic organ that behaves in an animal manner, by pieces that collaborate and create a whole, one that is not based in repetition but instead by collaboration with specific organs. With cinematic techniques the transmutation of the organsis activated.

    Part2. Infrastructure flesh. The second sequence will swell the thin layers that comprehend the skin, from the soft tissue to the porous matter; it all becomes an integrated morphology of substances.

    Part3. Animal. The third sequence will articulate the whole relation between parts, method of synthetic fabrications, circulations, presence and image.

    ENERGY CONTAINER:
    Small units of cells contain the energy generated from wind turbine and geothermal heating pump. Smaller cell mutates into the lager cell.
    GEOTHERMAL HEATING PUMP
    Penetrating the existing floor slab into ground. Major move effects the floor formations that ripples from center, out.
