Korean architects, Mass Studies, have attacked the idea of housing typology in this project for a Seoul Commune in the year 2026. The buildings are comprised of public and private cells; technology is harnessed to make the private cells more private and the public cells more public. From your private cell, you can monitor the goings on in the public cells. The outer skin of the towers utilise a geo-textile material supported by a hexagonal lattice structure that creates a habitat for vegetational growth. An automatic irrigation and vaporization system further enhances cooling for natural ventilation in summer.
