|A Badge of Renewal|
|ModPod was conceptualized as a renewal project. Its social ambition is apparent in the presence it establishes in the facade of the residence in which it is inserted. Its overhang announces the ModPod to the street and surrounding neighborhood, acting as a badge or symbol that proudly asserts the residence’s contribution to local urban renewal.|
In addition, by using an existing structure and existing urban infrastructure, ModPod exhibits urban sustainability through the reuse and re-densification/re-habitation of once established neighborhood communities. One ModPod in one house produces only an anomaly in the neighborhood. One ModPod in every house creates a visible wave of changing sentiment in how we inhabit our maturing cities.
