W-Lab Self-Sufficient Biocabins

W-LAB’s proposal includes a series of biocabins in a self-sufficient desert habitat. The homes are organized around a central water feature and are surrounded by plants chosen to survive in desert conditions. The form of each cabin was planned to best suit the environment, considering factors like wind, soil erosion, and the need for sound absorption for close neighbours. Between the cabins, tensile structures provide shade while solar panels produce energy for the community. By combining it with wind power, the habitat could be self-sustaining and would not need to be connected to general power grids. Interior gardens would be used to sustain the community.
