A new generation of residential complex will facilitate it's dwellers's needs in an urban plot. A flexible and forever changing, the complex will grow and evolve while new residents will arrive and current residents will relocate in time. Some units will even be able to open windows up on the ceiling or the floor depending on the unit's location. The main theme is flexibility and sensitivity to the surroundings and residents.
The complex is anchored by main vertical axis points with elevators, stairs, plumbing and electricity.The units are to be assembled onto the frame and relocating each cube will be easily available for the residents. Like the "Walking City" the idea of the structure as a flexible machine instead of a hollow rock led for a different way of looking at the project.
