Students in the Master of Science in Architectural Technologies Program at the Southern California Institute of Architecture proposed a sustainability-focused architecture project for the site of a former jail in Los Angeles. The program is in its first year of operation and is focused on addressing critical ecological issues with cutting-edge technology and architecture.
The proposed design reaps the benefits of 3D technology and artificial intelligence to bring cost-effective housing and a self-growing park to Los Angeles. The idea behind the self-sustaining vegetation is based on a desire to create something that blurs the line between "the rainforest and the luxury of the garden mall." In addition, the architecture project addresses not only ecology, but it aims to provide affordable housing with a design "that integrates residences with data centers and energy-production programmes."
