Melrose Community Filter: Forest Way

This housing scheme confronts the challenge of severe air pollution in the South Bronx Melrose community by imagining a habitable forest which filters air contaminated with allergens, pollutants, carbon and nitrogen dioxide. The modular prefab housing units are organized within a natural air & sound filter (forest) as well as artificial & mechanical filters as a radical scheme pushing the future of architecture that redefines the future of living within the built environment.
