The architectural concept of the – Blueprint 'green' house living community - collaborates with other household units and a marketplace as a public space. Due to the surplus of the production of their 'green' house living, such as products from waste and materials, etc., an economic exchange can take place
New building concept for living communities using greenhouse technology. The concept of this living community is concentrated by the energy of the individual capable of growing and selling his own safe food. The individual is living in this building. Wind and water are the natural elements of energy distribution within the building. Greenhouse technology is supporting the traditional way of local construction and use of materials.
The design uses cheap parts, such as containers, recycled wood, installation of rainwater to drinking water, so that it can also be used in emerging countries. Greenhouse with vertical farming + water supply + cooling by wind chimney is as standard as possible and located on the 1st floor. Ground floor = living + selling food on the internal market + public space
