Microtower City

Typological Research for a new sustainable neighborhood. Project Research

this is the baKpak of the building

The project for a new suburb of social housing in Tel Aviv was born from the criticism of skyscrapers as type for residential use.

The wisdom of Islamic architecture and its system of narrow streets is the theoretical basis of the typological experimentation that leads us to invent the “micro-tower” and to carve them according to the weather conditions of a place. The District works in four distinct superimposed layers: Market area (basement), free space (ground floor), residential area (floors 1-7), and rooftop terrace (covered).

The Microtower City gets the concept of compactness working with mid-scale buildings and building a complex and continuous public space both at lower levels and at deck level, where terraces are multipurpose space is used at night, creating a city of interconnected roofs.
