This master thesis deals with the design of a residential complex in Seoul. With its 10 Million inhabitants, the South Korean capital has one of the highest population densities in the world. For this reason, living areas are considered particularly rare and expensive. The site is located in Seocho district, located to the west of the Gangnam district, bordering the southern side of the Han River. Based on an imaginary project, multiple solutions for the lack of residential space and green areas are being explored. Despite low rental housing prices, high quality living and mixed functions are being created, while keeping an eye on Korean culture. Furthermore, the thesis focuses on the rise of single households and several experiments are being made on very compact single home units. The playful combination of these units, also called -Pixels-, creates three-dimensional waves, that fade into the hilly panorama of Seoul, also known as the Green Belt. At the same time, spatial configurations ensure that different households can meet and socialize. Thus, a particular attention is drawn on the high traffic commute in Seoul and its controversial work-life balance. In a new self-contained neighborhood, where pedestrians have more freedom than car drivers, where lost time in traffic jams becomes leisure time, and where stress converts into productivity, an almost car-less neighborhood, named -PIXELATED MICROCITY-, is born.
