Bird’s Eye View
The general shape of the pod has three curved roofs reflecting the interior programs.

Passive Alaskan Pod

Located on Jewel Lake in Anchorage, Alaska this home/pod provides multiple views of the surrounding water, mountains, and snow frosted trees. This 100 square foot design has the essential living spaces arranged in a split-level house style, where each program is separated by a few steps.

The height difference provides views from different angles and also smaller, easier to heat spaces. To further meet passive energy requirements, the design considers the sun orientation, insulation, and a curved roof, as is presented. Please download the pdf for more details.

what is biomimi?

Biomimi is the art portfolio of Priscilla M Lee. It is also, in main ways, her middle name. Biomimi is short for biomimicry, a holistic design approach inspired by nature. Nature has perfected sustainable design, by handling issues without harming the environment and contributing positively to the ecosystem. It is her strong belief that we should reference nature for our own designs, in hopes to increase appreciation for the environment and sustain life for all.
