You might have seen our previous posts  on Geotectura - from turning air into water  and electromagnetic skyscrapers , Joseph Cory has a list of very intriguing projects, and I-RISE  is no exception. Selected as a runner up for the Metropolis Magazine Next Generation  Competition, I-RISE  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 , I-RISE  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 , and more information and images can be seen on their website . And for more information on this and the other projects featured in the Next Generation  contest check out the May issue of Metropolis Magazine .
