Modular Capsule Housing | Cambridge, Ontario

In collaboration with: Armon Arani, Hillary Chang, Marco Chimienti, Richard Mui

Overview

Existence minimum. Majority of the people around the world have homes in which there are enough space within to allow for comfort and sometimes extravagance. However, we are now facing numerous consequences as this recent paradigm shift from rural to urban concentration emerges. What if we brought ourselves back to the most basic necessities of life? What if we can achieve a form of architecture to accommodate our urban lifestyle? This project attempts to investigate the possibilities of an alleyway dwelling in the urban environment of Cambridge, Ontario.
