Felipe Campolina’s Portable Housing Concept
The Brazilian architect's creation addresses sustainability and mobility issues
Felipe Campolina took an early concept of a prefab mobile housing unit that he developed, the ECObitat, and took it to a whole new level. The Portable Housing Tower nests hundreds of mobile units, which can be collapsed from 32m2 to 17m2 using a telescopic mechanism, providing better transportation efficiency. The tower’s structure also supports progressive coupling of modules, allowing for flexible living spaces.
