The Urban Escape – Designing A Community of Eco – Habitats
The challenge is to design a community of 50 eco-homes. Each home in the community should be designed keeping in mind all the sustainable aspects. We invite participants to design a gated housing community where the sustainability is at the center of the entire project. “The Urban Escape” design brief aims to explore innovative & sustainable housing ideas wherein earth , water , food , air and vegetation are considered as the elements of the project. Let us all try to bring a change and create a new category of housing which has all the features of an “Urban” home but at the same time the community experience is “Rural”.
