First World building techniques have overwhelmingly lead towards the erection of rigid and unaccommodating structures. Sensory City by Xiaofeng Mei is an innovative proposal for coastal Japan that recognizes the necessity for architectural adaptation at the mercy of the planet's fluctuations.

The project moves into the scale of revolutionary urban planning through which a cluster of skyscrapers and conjoining low-level masses are allowed to shift with every tectonic tremor, tidal wave and storm. The Sensory City by Xiaofeng Mei could stand for many hundreds of years with its capacity to evolve flexibly with the landscape.

What makes the concept even more organically responsive is its proposal to absorb a wide range of natural resources, including the energy of the earth's transformations to enable a widely eco-friendly lifestyle. Stats for Environmentally Adaptable Architecture Trending: Older & Warm
