Arch. Arianna Callocchia – curator exhibit "Water, architecture and materials"
Water, architecture and materials - 3 CFP
In nature, water is one of the main constituents of ecosystems and is the basis of all life forms on Earth. Water plays an essential role in the survival of living organisms and can change our planet from a geological and landscape point of view. Man has always recognised its importance as an indispensable element in civil, agricultural and industrial use. Water is an ever-changing element and, more than in the case of any other the type of innovation, is synonymous with continuous evolution.
Architecture and all its associated materials have always related to water, on a poetic and cultural level, as well as on a more technical and practical level. The exhibition “Water, architecture and materials” and corresponding seminar aim to present this dialogue through a selection of contemporary, Italian and international projects that interact with water by exploiting new, eco-friendly technologies and materials with innovative features and properties. Projects range from residential, public and hospitality to well-being. From architecture constructed near the sea, rivers or lakes, we move to structures floating or immersed in water until they reach water ‘containers,’ such as pools and spas.Back to home page
