Physical model in progress (48”x48”). First iteration of supertall skyscrapers which includes social infrastructure, parks, food production and energy generation to support existing communities.
White painted part of the model represents existing Chicago situation and made out of mdf. Unfinished part of structures made out of plywood represents test proposal based on computational design methodology and plugged parameters (set of rules and limits). All parts of model made via CNC MultiCAM.
I identified seven existing communities in Chicago Loop using GIS and based on walkability score. According to my project each community will have all necessary social infrastructure and will be energy autonomous with food production and water collection modules on top of each tower. All communities connected to each other.
