Primitiva (Proletarian People Power Tower)

The studio will aim a building which is “planet and people friendly”, meaning it contributes to a carbon free world with the lowest possible fossil footprint on one end and provides an environment which makes/keeps its inhabitants happy, healthy, inspired and productive on the other end with the resulting architecture trying to per-form as beautifully as the in it researched subject of nature.

The studio will investigate in the reciprocity of poetry and pragmatism of ecological / green architecture and with discovering budgetarian, programmatic and preconceived design constraints as positive design generators trying to reconnect to the traditional virtues of Native Hawaii homebuilders whose structures were in balance and harmony with both science (bioclimatic) and the arts (spiritually symbolic space and place based “performtexture” as opposed to Western literal symbolic and form based “architecture”).
