The design uses sliced forms that break up city blocks to increase light penetration and take advantage of passive solar gain.
The ground is manipulated to form public and private green living spaces and 'energy orchards' between, within and on top of the new residential slices. These are connected to a hub that is a local exchange for goods, services, energy and recycling and becomes a focal point on the adjacent street. The slices shift in scale, form and density, responding to their location, setting up views and vistas to the interstitial green spaces and the park to the east.
