As part of the Inhabits program at Milan Design Week 2018, the agrAir project by Piuarch outlines the elements which will hopefully be valued for living in the future - lightness, luminosity, careful use of resources, dissolution of contrasts between interiors and outdoors, between natural and artificial spaces – in a balanced relationship between earth and air.
The underlying concept of the Piuarch project, which will also be repeated with the same features on the rooftop garden of the architectural office (via Palermo 1, Brera, Milan) is to outline those values that are able to promote environmental quality through their mutual interaction: lightness, luminosity, careful use of resources and cost-effectiveness, dissolution of contrasts between interiors and outdoors, between natural and artificial spaces, recovery of green areas and agriculture in the city.
Finally, between the two horizontal layers, some connections are drawn: the acrylic glass rods are used as support for creepers reaching to the balloons, marking the indissoluble link between natural items and artefacts. agrAir si pone dunque come manifesto concettuale della controversa dicotomia ambiente-struttura realizzando un programma di rigenerazione urbana che promuove, tra le altre cose, lo spirito ottimistico del Fuorisalone.
