Home-kit is a modular, affordable and flexible housing system for the information age in which different live-work units assembled from a kit of parts can be aggregated into various building types such as the high-rise tower, the medium-rise perimeter block, or the low-rise building between party walls. It is an abstract, mathematical exercise in flexibility at multiple scales ranging from that of home furnishings through room, dwelling unit and building type all the way to urban morphology. Project developed in collaboration with Mónica Ferrer, Fredy Massad, and Paolo Sustersic.
