Designed by Cristian Ferrera Architecture, “Natural Symphony” is an exploration of architectural sustainability, with a prototype designed to house four people per unit. Centered around a large prism-shaped space for common use, there are stairs and elevators that spread out towards the individual units, with decks between each of the nine levels. On the outside, cells harness wind energy through tubular conduits, while solar photovoltaic cells cover the roof. These two energy sources can provide up to 50 percent of the housing system’s energy needs, and there are also areas intended for rainwater collection to be used in greywater systems. This project was recently selected to be featured at the International Architecture Biennale in Argentina this November, 2014.
