Adaptive Micro Cities

Don't go to pieces--relax with a jigsaw puzzle of a modular design concept!

2023 Forge Prize finalists Masamichi Ikeda and Junior Carbajal of JR Miller and Associates designed a self-sustaining, vertical micro city to revitalize a small island in an industrial zone in Portland, Ore.

Steel allows for a simple, modular design with strong bolted connections for easy assembly and disassembly in a confined space.

Ikeda and Carbajal are working with James Buchan, president and CEO of Alpha Iron, to prepare their final concept to present to this year's Forge Prize judges. Keep an eye on for information about the live final judging event on YouTube this spring!
