Pavilion for the exhibition "Interior Design Energies"

The core question posed by the project shown in the exhibition "Interior design energies" is whether or not it is possible to combine sustainability with the residential development and construction. The answer to this question is provided by the construction of the pavilion "dream home, house for 100k", with the support of Italcementi. The pavilion structure is made of wood, the base is slightly raised, the walls are made of translucent concrete and are coated with tx active (a photocatalytic principle that reduces smog). The inner surfaces display a printed film that illustrates the plan "home for 100 k".
