Octagon. Typhoon resistant Know-House

know-house approach wants to merge the global digital fabrication knowledge to the specific issues of a local context, to find an architectural precise solution.
The goal of know-house is to allow people, companies, and government, to build houses in a short time, on a very low budget, and whit high architectural and structural performance.
To do this, know-house embeds to its projects the best advantages of a digital fabrication concept: replicability, customization and - the most important one – the easy access to the necessary knowledge.
Octagon is the first project of know-house, and it is an affordable housing prototype, which responds to increment weather conditions.
