FAB TREE HAB
Living Graft Prefab Structure

Credits: Mitchell Joachim
Lara Greden, Javier Arbona

Our dwelling is composed with 100%
living nutrients.  Here traditional
anthropocentric doctrines are
overturned and human life is
subsumed within the terrestrial
environs. Home, in this sense,
becomes indistinct and fits itself
symbiotically into the surrounding
ecosystem.
This home concept is intended to
replace the outdated design solutions
at Habitat for Humanity.  We propose
a method to grow homes from native
trees.  A living structure is grafted into
shape with prefabricated Computer
Numeric Controlled (CNC) reusable
scaffolds.  Therefore, we enable
dwellings to be fully integrated into
an ecological community.
