Parasite Architecture 2

Designed as a prototype house, meant to showcase the combination of prefabrication technologies and ‘tailor-made design’, the ‘Las Palmas Parasite’ was constructed on the protruding elevator shaft of the exhibition warehouse – which dictated the size/shape of the plan. The ‘object’ was constructed on the roof of the existing building, and in true parasitic form it drew all of its services – water, sewage, and electricity – from the warehouse, while also drawing on its support structurally.
