Ecuadorian architects Alejandra Frutos and David Tixi propose a sustainable housing solution for slum dwellers who crave for a livable shelter in large cities. Dubbed as Vertical Massive Invasion, the housing concept – a skyscraper basically – is a large-scale primary structure that would defy any intrusions into the natural areas. Specifically drafted for Ecuadorian city Guayaquil, the initial design allows ample space for several 80 square meter prefabs in a super-modulated metallic structure.
Made from bamboo, wood, or recycled shipping containers, the homes – assemble on ground – will ascend to the skyscrapers. It will be equipped with all modern facilities, such as health centers, administrative wings, business facilities, recreation hub and centers of education.
