PREMISE

 

Vision: Extreme Habitat Challenge pushes to explore habitat concepts that are responsible, yet brave to grow human civilization in synchronous with nature + technology + planet.

Design a concept habitat of 1,000 people within an area of 0.5mi x 0.5mi, which is able to expand itself to 100,000 (2.5mi x 2.5mi) as needed/desired by the population moving into the place. The challenge invites ideas that push the boundaries of design using innovative habitat working models, materials, technology, close to zero land costs, a nomadic yet rooted lifestyle.

This design exercise can be considered similar to colonizing new earth with the technology of today. The first 1,000 people prototype habitat will house all the three elements of human life in it - Live, Work and Play.

The first ever Extreme Habitat Challenge competition chooses two major cities (New York, USA x Mumbai, India), connected via the fastest mode of land bound transit (Hyperloop). This site peculiarly with a very less human population density is a test bench for designing a new habitat will inspire how life should be in similar environments while balancing itself harmoniously between forces of nature.
