Our Proposal advocates the idea of collective responsibility and shared energy resources. The idea of collectivism for refrigeration works as a nexus, a mediator between individual and collective, the fix and flexible, the domestic and infrastructural. This dynamic and evolving system interacts with the community showing how to share and manage resources by taking advantages of the time based complexity of temperature (Sea Water, Soil Thermal Quality, Vegetation Passive Cooling, Rainwater, etc). We intend to rethink the distribution of temperature through utilizing existing resources into urban assemblage to make the best use of it for refrigeration.
