Spazio comune

The name of the structure, that means “big leaf”, wants to be by itself a description of what we created. Inspired by the world of nature, we looked for the most flexible and organic structures that ever stood under the sun to protect from light and rain, and to take their energy as a fundamental source, thus discovering the world of leaves. Each leaf represents by its shape the sophisticated design that plants have developed to allow the photosynthetic processes. The formal configurations  that leaves can take are seemingly endless and varied, as opposed to family, shape, color and texture. Our work started by trying to figure out what kind of configuration can be built up to meet the most various kinds of human needs, without forgetting that we are working for a developing country, which is Rwanda. The shape we worked on had to be very organic and essential, light and flexible, and tough at the same time, so the choice to build with a versatile material taken from nature, like bamboo is, was crucial. The final results embodies our responsible approach to the values of innovation mixed with the economy and functionality of nature.

Pavillons 4

Spazio comune coperto

A place to play, to meet together and have fun. A big roof  that allows the experience sharing behind it. The structure we designed comes up with the need to provide an outdoor roofed-over space to the San Marco centre’s auditorium. It is characterized by a considerable modularity and a remarkable flexibility of uses. It is actually made up of two principal elements, which form the entire bearing unit. Pylons of three rods are added to them, in order to support the covering.

Un posto per giocare, per riunirsi e festeggiare. Un grande tetto sotto cui condividere esperienze. La struttura proposta risponde all’esigenza di dotare l’auditorium del centro San Marco di uno spazio esterno coperto, destinato agli eventi sociali e conviviali. Si caratterizza per un’accentuata modularità strutturale e una notevole flessibilità di utilizzo. Essa infatti si compone di due elementi principali, che vanno a formare l’intero complesso portante, a cui si aggiungono dei tralicci a tre aste che sorreggono la copertura.
