2101 A Tower Parasite,

Andrew Lin+Kangyun Kim+Kevin Hwang

A parasitic model that acts by combinations and assemblies, to form a commercial tower.

The parasite model allows for an existing commercial tower to be self-dependent by using passive modes of processing. It works through a combination of several distinct elements that can be assembled to suit its host.

This allows flexibility, but also allows for growth and adaptations as new technologies are developed. The future of infrastructure is not to demolish and remake buildings, rather the answer lies in a more passive and parasitic approach to minimize further energy uses.
