The structure components made in chestnut wood, are jointed together by interlocking systems and customised wooden diagonals. Set up dry and directly on the structure, without any chemical glue use, the system technology offers opportunities for closing the loop by reuse the existing components.
The lightweight material and the modular dimensions make the structure easy to transport: folded, linked together and stacked one on top of the other. Due to its feasibility and fast-deployment nature it can be quickly sited and set up, generates portable and incredibly versatile solutions.
The configurations that can be made to its basic shape are almost limitless, can be modified in a variety of ways to suit particular functional purposes. Conceived to provide temporary or semi-permanent accommodation ( infrastructure and skin) the system works where traditional building methods are impractical due to cost, time or logistical conditions.
The skin is made by a pv textile (PW 90, amorphous silicon) able to adapt itself to complex shapes providing impressive energetic performances and indoor overshadowing conditions.
