Canopy for Expats
This project proposes an urban life that is integrated with nature. The low-rise building brings the expat residents closer to the ground and enables them to be in sync with nature and the community. Housing units cluster around green courtyards without sacrificing density, creating a porous, continuous landscape to circulate. In this landscape, the omnipresence of pedestrian activity strengthens the sense of belonging which helps expats to take root in this community. Reimagining the low-rise housing across South Bronx, this project provides neighborhood infrastructure with publicly accessible open space, greenery, and a waterfront.
