Instant House - Expo 2015 - Milan - Italy - 2010

Following the Milano Expo theme - “Feeding the planet, energy for life” - our proposol is based on the comunity principle. The need of sharing experiences with our neighbours, making part of something new. A new Urban comunity...

For the concept of our work we thought as essential to create an intimate public space where the visitors could feel at home and share their meals from around the World.
The proposal is about meeting, equality and the creation of an “Urban Family”.
The basis concept for our dwelling is the new human relationship experience/dialogue and comon share. The circular shape represents in an abstract way the principle of equality. The intervention explores diversity to the inhabitants, a way to circulate, watch and use.
At an urban scale created a DNA helix that scribbles around the park creating meeting points, paths, a part of the city on its own. 

The interior space concept is based in a multifunctional open space functional distribution around a green central ventilation courtyard.
