The folks from Platform for Architecture have devised plans for a 15-acre eco development just outside Palm Springs in the Mojave Desert that will see up to 18 individual units built.
Everything about the units is designed with the arid desert terrain in mind: Platform for Architecture has incorporated solar roofs and other amazing green innovations. These homes are among the first to be built in the area, so more will likely follow depending on their success.
Implications - The Platform for Architecture has come up with an innovative plan for an eco-development. The development will occupy a space of 15 acres and will feature solar roofs, shaded glazing and passive design. I would love inhabit this development, wouldn't you?
