Experimental Ecological Community
The site is located outside of Orlando, Florida surrounded by a rich marshland. The sites hydrology patterns connect to the Ogeechee water basin, which eventually connects to the Everglades. An urban response was developed maintain and reconnect the surrounding wetlands. The ecologic community aims to serve as a natural filter for the local area.
The mixed use development allows us to coexist with nature and enhance the natural landscape. The community also promotes public transportation by connecting to the future high speed rail of Florida with a monorail system that is elevated throughout the site. The canal systems through the community allows for water level control as well as natural filtration creating micro climates through the community.
