In Rome, Airship.03-Fontana d’aria is a microclimate prototype to be explored through senses from 10 to 12 May 2019
In Rome, during the Festival del Verde e del Paesaggio at Auditorium Parco della Musica, it will be possible to visit Airship.03-Fontana d’aria, from 10 to 12 May 2019. This temporary climate-landscape installation invites visitors to plunge into a multisensory experience where design and high technology meet sustainability and nature.
Airship.03, designed by the collective breathe.earth.collective, stems from the Austrian booth in Expo Milan 2015: a green area that intrigued, amused and refreshed the audience during the hottest days, showing the relationship between Austria and the environment.
Airship.03 has chosen Rome and Festival del Verde e del Paesaggio to start a dialogue on the quality of life and air in the city. Airship.03 participates as a prototype with different functions: a green oasis in the city, a model for purifying the air, a way to encourage visitors to live an experience through their senses while reflecting on air and climate, vital resources of our time.
The installation interacts directly with the surrounding environment and the microclimate. On hot summer days Airship.03 becomes a refreshing oasis: thanks to ventilation and water vaporizing technology, the perceived indoor temperature is up to 5 degrees lower than outside. On rainy days, water is collected on the roof and filtered in the central tank.
