TrashFormation Village, is a visionary space where everything is made with scrap materials and new technologies, where living spaces are made sustainable, from the home to work to social gatherings:
Houseboat represents a new way to conceive of the home as a micro living unit designed by Lucio Micheletti in fir planks and made by Rubner Haus, a leading company in wood constructions. The architect was inspired by rationality and the essentiality of life on a boat, celebrating a virtuous rapport with nature while thinking of a small tower on two floors, whose interiors constantly interact with the outdoors through sweeping windows.
The Circular Lab, or the Arena, conceived by architect Mario Cucinella, focuses on the circular economy “to think of plastic not as waste, but as a resource,” combining urban space, sharing and the reuse of materials into a single project. The installation was made with 100 multi-material tanks — completely recyclable products commonly used by companies to contain raw materials or liquid waste.
The school of the village is designed by Anders Lendager, a Danish architect leading the Lender Group, which is entirely dedicated to the philosophy of sustainable living and construction.
The Habitat Ufficio pavilion sees a structure in recyclable tubular aluminum filled with lush plants and is presented as an autonomous ecosystem to dedicate oneself to everyday work in harmony with nature observing the principles of biophilia.
In the TrashFormation Village, there’s also space for the hi-tech agriculture of Planet Farms, which showcases an authentic vocation for sustainability through an evocative and experiential path dedicated to the innovative world of vertical agriculture. Large images show the key moments of a plant’s growth, which thanks to light, water, air, and well-dosed mineral salts, develop harmoniously, exalting the “go vertical” motto that marks the philosophy and practice of Planet Farms in recovering resources.
The possibility to improve environmental comfort in urban areas is the theme addressed by Pininfarina Architecture, whose installation Urban Lounge was realized in collaboration with Indexlab.
