Spring Up / Amphibious house

Spring Up

Use the flooding heights predicted by each area to classify them systematically. The number of components matches the height of the required building.The solution concept comes from automatic pens,which can install with different refills.The raised device of the residence is based on each modularised component, and each area can be given a relative level (different intensity, height) as a refill according to the category of flooding in each area.Those components were originally stored in the building’s foundation.For lifting, this method can apply to different building and coexist with the problem of small-scale flooding.
