The narrative behind this project is a group of cells functioning together in order to create a self sustaining environment. The project’s system is organized by overlaying an organic canopy-like structure over a 9 square grid, based off of the superblock neighborhood plan seen in Spain. Each square has a park that serves as a node to be built around and each park has a unique design to give its neighborhood a unique identity.
