Opencon* / Parasitic Building System

The other system--parasitic system, It could be considered as a prefabricated open sub-system-, fitting people’s needs directly with open choices. Finally it spreads rapidly and enormously to create another face of urban landscape.Since container system is broadly used not only in transportation of merchandise but in architectural level as well, such as betel nuts shops and workshops. In our observation, container system is a potentially talent system to develop--STACKING and MOVABLE, as two key points, gives us and open vision. In this project, we look for a solution to balance these two faces of urbanscape by taking containers as the module and units for structure.
