Seoul Manifesto, a group of young architects in Seoul, South Korea, are known for designing projects with the objective of making structures with better social responsibility. In their project, Hello Mongol / HM VER 1.0 / ABSORBING GER, their goal is to make a mobile structure which can achieve two different goals, making an alternative residence for desertification of Mongol and stirring up the public’s attention for the problem. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Desertification of Mongol resulted in a critical deficiency of living space of Mongol. Absorbing Ger is designed to solve this problem by combining functional and morphological specificity of Mongol’s Ger and possibility of Seoul’s throwaway waste.

The disposable coffee cups, which are discharged in Seoul, will be used as (1) a structural component of the Ger, (2) a pot for the planting activities, (3) a buffering apparatus for sand storms and (4) a set of environmental equipment for residents.
