FLEXIBILITY IN MODULARITY

Project description

This project explores place attachment theory by creating mobile spaces that allow users to move with their homes after school. The units can perform almost autonomously, as long as water, electricity and sewage disposal means are provided. Using Saint Gobain materials, each unit can achieve thermal comfort on its own.
