Collective mobility within an internet of objects is expressed in an architectural grid of urban pixels. These urban building blocks arrange themselves out of their attempt for maximum  solar exposure, forming a sharpangled overall roofscape. Sun facing facades turn themselves inwards avoiding unwanted solar gain during summer month. Unit depths optimised for the maximum use of natural light add to the beneficial atmosphere of living spaces.
