At present day, projects that label themselves as sustainable architecture are considering technology firstly then architecture secondly .
The architecture exists only at the mercy of technological achievements of engineering and better material solutions.
The idea of creating a sustainable complex is to build a sense of harmony between nature and technology in an integrated urban form.
These apartments are stacked on top of each other, while the commercial program unfolds at the base of the building. Due to the sun path, the buildings will vary in heights so the apartments will benefit from sun light , fresh air and the great view to the site. The typology is inspired by the urban context.
