The proposal for an adaptive housing project and its chosen location arose from two obstacles that all modern cities, and the world as a whole, face. The urban environment is revered for its cultural amalgam of people and wide range of demographics; however with this density and diversity comes a shortage of one type or another of commodious housing. Additionally and consequentially, the city must expand and build new buildings, leaving older, unsuitable building vacant. An adaptive architecture would allow families to grow and demographics to shift within the established community, all the while reinvigorating that second obstacle the city and the world is facing today - the disconnect from our natural world. Adaptable housing that also displays its adaptive forces in its form and texture, as responses to environmental conditions, would raise public awareness of the forgotten lessons that nature has to teach our modern society.
