Since the inhabitable spaces over the planet are going scarce, it’s the right time to see for inspiration toward the biological elements and to develop ecosystems that could support housing with some adaptive features. Doing just the same, Chimera mimics the flexible shape of a mangrove tree to fashion or simply to propose some spiraling skyscrapers for the beautiful city of London. Mangal City consists of modular pod capsules that have biomimetic principles at their core.

Our vision is to define an urban ecosystem which supports housing and cultural programs and has the ability to adapt, transform, mutate and adjust according to the specific urban and social character of the site.

The complex topography of the site, i.e. an elevated plateau, seeks to merge the cellular façade of the construction with the surrounding ambiance of the region. Another influencing factor is the natural form of phullotaxis that defines a parametric machine to create a responsive urban ecology.
