NOVOLUME - project - 2006/2007

Concept design for an observatory pavilion, suitable to diverse environmental contexts. The project was shown at the exhibition 'Florence-Exit, a new generation of architects” Florence. Affratellamento Theatre, 24-31 May 2007. NOVOLUME belongs to the urban assimilators series: it is a mobile pavilion which passes through a system of 'proprioceptors': these record the energy developed by the continuing friction between the dissonant strategies of the urban contemporary space and the dimensional limits of the city. Through receptors (mobile antennas with sensitive detectors to wind movement, noise, traffic congestion environment) the building transforms the activities inside it into positive energy, addressed to a public user. It is a living building.
