Urbanarium’s Mixing Middle Competition - Honorable Mention
BIOPHILIA offers an alternative approach to building community resilience. Through powerful graphic storytelling, we proposed context specific interventions such as the N-End Lot, E-W Lot and the N-S Lot. Each of these optimizes ground-oriented living by allowing for multiple dwellings per site while equalizing access from the street and laneway.
A blend of building configurations create more flexible housing options on each site and cultivate courtyard typologies which make for cooler microclimates.
