My Exhibition is back with a new autumn event “Green Home Design, living the present” an exhibition on architecture, sustainable building and energy efficiency organized by My Exhibition in collaboration with MADE expo and patronized by the Green Building Council.
Within its surface area of 1600 sq m, Green home design offered hospitality to three houses, one playschool, a congress hall and a lounge area with Bio bar, all of which were proper prefabricated 1:1 scale structures. The designers of the project, Aldo Cibic, Marco Piva and Massimiliano Mandarini presented their own interpretation of contemporary architecture with projects that combine aesthetic research, functionality and energy-efficient solutions.
For Green Home Design the Cibicworkshop has designed an installation in scale which consists of two houses built with two innovative solutions: the technology of hemp and a dry system with metal frame.The house in hemp is a way of building contemporary with natural materials. Although
today has almost disappeared in Italy, hemp was an essential element of the Italian agricultural production history. Building today with this material means build new economies of the region with the latest environmental and energy performance requirements.The house will be built with the dry system with metal frame, however, is an innovative technical that combines high performance building and energy with a radical reduction
of construction time. This structural system enables the use of traditional materials in new ways resulting in a completely recyclable, anti-seismic and solid construction time very low and controllable.
The real need of this “Green-oriented” approach is to develop new ways of conceiving the residential structures and service to meet the needs of different lifestyles that are becoming increasingly complex and varied and, at the same time, to make the best use of natural resources by implementing measures to reduce energy consumption needed the realization of the structure and its subsequent operation over time and, ultimately
reducing all forms of pollution that might arise.Hence the concept of the exhibition “Space for Life” project by Marco Piva for “Green Home Design” Made in 2012.
Referring to the environmental conditions and climate rapidly changing, and even to the catastrophic effects that natural events can have on the built environment (see the recent earthquake in Emilia) the exhibition will address the issues of small-scale residential structures and of possibility to combine the same into more articulated structures and able to meet the needs of habitable of high-level, with equally high levels of quality of materials, construction technology, resistance to catastrophic events and the ability to reduce consumption and harmful emissions.The manufacturing technology of reference is that of wood, a renewable natural material, thinking also at the construction time of housing units, their cost of construction and management. The project involves the definition of modular elements and aggregatable. A modular solution that costs less, which has a fixed price, and providing for an average installation time of 8/10 days. These design solutions are also made in relation to more high standards of energy and can be modified over time, further develops in relation to the needs of those who live there. Objective of the project is to evaluate, for works of small and medium scale designed to solve problems of temporary habitability, the transition from a concept of stable and permanent architecture to a configuration more dynamic, changeable, expandable. Each habitative module will be designed with residential energy performance of “Class A”, will use renewable energy and will be extremely antisimica and fire resistant.
Green Kinder House wants to be a micro modular environment off-grid zero-impactoriented understood as an architecture product according to the green building LEED* approach. The project, made suitable for children, address a topic of great relevance that is design antisimica. Will be tested green technologies and innovative materials zero-impact-oriented such as modular construction technologies, materials and products for water efficiency and energy efficiency, design for all suitable for children, sustainable lighting and building automation. The realization comes in two prototype “design for nature” included in a project of landscape that includes on the ground floor, a public space suitable for children (ecoschools) and, on the first floor, a green house, with access design for all and ramp overview. The installation covers an area of 300 square meters and is designed as a new model to rethink, redevelop and renovate the city through green building and smart city
approach.The idea is told in 3 priority areas:
- The sustainability of the project life cycle (design innovation, architecture zero impact, short chain component of the product architecture, integration of the “natural component” of the case, different uses, the conversion of recycling envelope components).
- building systems Green Building through modularity and flexibility of the structure and space of the casing offgrid, designed as a producer of energy, mobile (accommodate various climatic conditions) and intelligent (in terms of speed of construction and assembly different types of uses). But even through the use of open plan spaces with a view of “renewable architecture.”
- The quality of the indoor environment: the strong focus on the themes and aseismic areas suitable for children and all sensitive loads, in a optical of design for all.
The process of the whole concept of sustainability also depends on the choice of companies that are able to provide materials, furnishings, finishes and technology solutions in order to complete the supply chain eco-friendly green project, the concept of architectures capable of promoting culture of smart and sustainable cities.
GKH is an innovative earthquake-proof plate on two levels. Downstairs you develop a “educational architecture” in which space educates to sustainability, a source of emotional stories through creative and innovative use of space and design, promoting safety and welfare of children through the interaction of technology , materials and solutions that may accompany the idea of active child, explorer and researcher, learner interaction with the physical and social environment.At the upper floor is accessed via a ramp that tells the visitor the theme of sustainability
with an inclination to ecology and sustainable consumption of resources.
The second floor is a Green House: a module in which the nature occupies the spaces to tell itself through a green approach to the future. Symbol of this story is the Tree technological which meant to represent development towards clean energy future, sustainable and and environmentally friendly and enhancement of distribution channels to zero kilometer.
