You might have seen our previous posts [2] on Geotectura [3]- from turning air into water [2] and electromagnetic skyscrapers [4], Joseph Cory has a list of very intriguing projects, and I-RISE [5] is no exception. Selected as a runner up for the Metropolis Magazine Next Generation [6] Competition, I-RISE [6] is a multi-story prefab residential unit designed to have the smallest possible footprint, both on the site and in an ecological sense. Its intention is to create a modular structure that is simple to build, yet flexible enough to accommodate the changing needs of its occupants.

Designed by Joseph Cory and Eyal Malka [3], I-RISE [6] contains the infrastructure required for generating renewable energy as well as the collection and treatment of rainwater and solid waste. This is another intriguing proposal from Geotectura [3], and more information and images can be seen on their website [3]. And for more information on this and the other projects featured in the Next Generation [6] contest check out the May issue of Metropolis Magazine [7].
