Called Coral Reef, the plug-in building for 1,000 Haitian families would be built upon seismic piers off the coast of the mainland with prefabricated, modular units that fit into a wave-like matrix as needed. Each passive home would minimize energy usage and renewable energy sources would make the entire project carbon neutral.
As Haiti marches onward towards reconstruction, Vincent Callebaut continues to pump out amazing concepts for utopian eco villages for Haitians. Inspired by the organic form of coral, Callebaut proposes Coral Reef, a plug-in matrix for 1,000 Haitian families. Built upon seismic piers off the coast of the mainland, the prefabricated, modular units can be fit into a wave-like matrix as space is needed. Each family would have a plot of land to grow their own food, and their passive home would minimize energy usage, while renewable energy sources would make the entire project carbon neutral.
