Multiplier Housing

​By Tidathip Chanyong & Paweera Panprommin

The starting idea comes from the point that we want to create a unique different city but simple, and suitable with everywhere else. also can be everything what you need in the same time. It can be the wall, the floor, the column or even the roof in the same time. The construction which can be built by any piece from this idea. And it can solve the problem of population overflow. The function of the building is so simple. The main construction will be built on other buildings which can bear the loads of this innovative construction. It would suit the city with insufficient land and wants to build up more space in vertical dimension. It will be connected through the main system and also connected through transportation in the building vertically which will be connected to public walking path. Also there will be webbing bridge from our building which can be used to build and connect with another new building from the simple piece like the floor,the wall,the roof to become a new home connecting to each other. The size and dimension of the building will depend on individual preference of living. So every building will reflect the style of its own. The creativity of main area of the building can also be flexible. It might sounds out of reality but the concept and boundaries still be 'on' the old buildings. That means from the starting point of old main area of the city, melting with the new dimension of new designed buildings on top. The old and the new can't be apart from each other because they are from the same soul of this city. They are all come and reflect the way ​people living in this city. It is not just reflect new technology, but it will be new extension from time to time.​
