The concept defined by extending the existing natural grounds around the Triennale into the semi-outdoor built structure and the main lobby space, inviting the natural environment to be expanded through a sustainable vision integrating reclaimed materials found in our surroundings. Textile from recycled waste will be used, coming from our common waste in the region, and we will used to knit performative properties like light, sound and air in order to design a ribbon that can react to environment and enhance our wellbeing. Students will work either with computational tool and with hands on manual techniques…
