Living behind the wall is a conceptual drive behind this model. Exterior of the wall is the energy collection which is the wind where the whole project could produce the electricity for the whole island of Moorea! All these walls are facing North East direction where the prevailing wind in Moorea. On the other side of the wall is where the inhabitation spaces are located such as kitchen, bedroom, living room, even bathroom. Directly facing the wind direction, certain structural system need to be used, which in this case, is cable suspended system. In addition this language also carries through on the other side of the wall which becomes the canopy for the living spaces. The canopy could be readjust according to the lighting quality needed in a certain space. Covering different site conditions ranging from grass area to water area. These site selection is taking advantage of having different condition for various type of programs. Module is developed to create the division between program but still connected as a whole. Furthermore, it is slightly located offset from each other to create entrance for each particular module. The whole scheme work together as one building linking with the same module.
