[RE]Cycling the Cycle

The building/block, as requirement for the 22@ project, will be a center for energy, openness, learning, investigation, and research; where people can live, work, and play.  The project tends to invite the passer-by to its interiors by having open floor plans and a series of walkways that allow for human interaction.

The metabolism of the project will be based on Natural water cycle, which is also an inspiration for the project.  Using current technology, the building/block will imitate the natural process saving not only on water consume, but also in energy waste.

It will be conformed by farm terraces that will work perfectly in the sense that water will follow through a determinate path; therefore water cycling will be appreciated and noticeable through the metabolism of the building.  Through this, remains and waste from the farms and neighboring blocks will be collected and processed thereafter to provide energy throughout the building.
