FR-EE is debuting a vision for a binational city on the US-Mexico border at the 2016 London Design Biennale. The concept is rooted in the long history of places where frontiers meet, cities where cultures both clash and blend. This integrated masterplan is conducive to both sides of the border, drawing upon industrial, employment and trade opportunities, and underpinned by sustainability principles. The urban prototype, with a hexagonal plan, might offer a new model for cities as populations grow, migration increases, and economies continue to globalize.
Villa E is a self-sustaining house designed as an holistic contemporary machine for living where the central space -living room- became the heart of the house. Using advances in product design to bring housing into a new hybridized realm, Villa E illustrates what a home can be from the ground up, bringing together the latest research, technology, and new standards of living into a masterfully crafted dwelling. Starting construction in 2017
