Prefab Parasite

The Prefab Parasite is to populate the unused spaces found in urban landscapes. Fittingly, the parasite will cling to old facades, rock faces and even bridges as a way to achieve sustainable densification.

Designed using parametric 3D modelling software, the form is a flexible entity as all components, such as the structural system, facade, cladding, floor levels and stairs are integrated into a sole parametric model. Integration of the design system increases efficiency and accuracy of the construction process.

A mounting plate is attached to the back wall where the parasite will attach. Floors are added and lastly, the structural facade is put in place to provide lateral bracing to the form.
