Mobitecture – Design X Design’s new competition encourages creation of ‘movable habitats’!
Along with proposing deploy able residential modules, the brief of this International competition also entails an aspect of sustainability. The designed entries must cater to the immediate requisites of the environment, thus imbibing an Eco-friendly approach. “To live in harmony with other forms of life on earth; and with nature as a whole should have come naturally to us, but that has not been the case”, states the Principal Architect of Ant Studio – Ar. Monish Siripurapu. Popularly known for designing projects which target to influence ‘greener’ lifestyles, Ant Studio also advocates the merge of technological advancements with sustainable solutions – to create germane built concepts. Explaining the requirement of creating ‘greener’ built structures for the competition and the world at large, Ar. Monish further elucidates, “Due to the over exploitation of resources and other toxic practices, we are at the brink of the topple. It is about time that we save this benediction called Earth; and conceive perspectives that are fresh yet comply with current contemporary obligations.”
