MICRO ROOT HOME
"Tree is leaf and leaf is tree-house is city and city is house - a tree is a tree but it also a huge leaf - a leaf is a leaf, but it also a tiny tree - a city is not a city unless it is also a huge house - a house is a house only if it is also a tiny city." Aldo van Eyck, St. Louis 1962
This Architectutal project is an attempt to prepare mankind could once again coexist with nature with all morphological scales The micro greenhouse is a new habitat typology which immediately integrates into its space the environment by inviting the landscape indoors through its transparency and by letting its residents be in dialogue with nature in all of their daily activities The organic textile covering the facade gives the impression that the house is developing roots in the ground on which it stands and draws nourishment from the soil. The residents are instantly fed with natures healing effects and in return this micro house space leaves only a small footprint on the surface of the earth.
