Project description:

FLAT urban living

Super-condensed fill-ins

The project was displayed at the Biennale in Venice in 2000, entitled “The city - less aesthetics, more ethics”. Aiming for plots that are uninteresting for common housing development, the project challenges traditional communication between dwellings and their neighborhood. It examines the typology of 100% module-based, small, flexible apartments in urban areas and possibilities for environmental-friendly and energy-saving tactics. Simultaneously it searches for possibilities to give back people the possibility to emotionalize their environment. FLAT proposes architecture as a dynamic event, a multi-rhythm created by many different human actions.
