UF0


"Urban-Footprint-Zero" Eco modular home
The UF0 - "Urban Footprint Zero" concept is a modular project for new large urban schemes to create a mix of rural and urban sustainable communities' development in the respect for the environment, the land use and the self-production of food.

  • Systemic changes

UF0 is an urban design concept which aims to create an urban community development focused on a self-productive environment. The name evokes the idea of a self-productive ecosystem which leans on the Earth like a spaceship without consuming natural resources and soil. It can be considered in the new economy countries for a long-term vision to respond at the global urbanization issues related to the soil consumption. It may be ideal as an alternative way to the classical suburban detached-housing schemes which dramatically consume great quantity of natural land. Considering the land as a limited global resource, this community will reduce its ecological-footprint by living in a modular prefabricated hypogeum-buildings, neutralizing the presence of human constructions above the ground. Each MODULE is made by 6 different prefab. LIVING-CELLS combined in a circle. The self-production of food arrives from the green-roofs above each singular apartment and from a farming-park land


3D Section of the modular scheme; Family composition studies and general dimensions

Prefabricated modules and construction systems; Green-Roofs: seed varieties and different configuration of the UFO in function of different ecological environments.
