Climate Responsive Installation 2021

Climate-responsive installation by Pininfarina Architecture at Fuorisalone 2021
The structure, called URBAN LOUNGE, will be part of RoGUILTLESSPLASTIC, an international project sponsored by Rosana Orlandi that aims to raise awareness about plastic reuse and recycling.
URBAN LOUNGE is designed as a responsive public space that can take advantage of the specific microclimate and its surroundings to increase user comfort and active strategies for mitigating the microclimate.
Exploring how urban outdoor spaces operate to combat climate change, the installation improves outdoor comfort by introducing passive and active strategies tailored to local climatic conditions: outdoor comfort is influenced by environmental parameters such as solar radiation, humidity, air quality, and wind speed.
By addressing these criteria, Urban Lounge values ​​outdoor comfort.

The overall structure is achieved through the use of recycled and recyclable plastic. The goal is to demonstrate that plastics do not generate negative externalities as such, but can instead be extraordinary resources for a more sustainable future.
The main culprit of pollution is not plastic itself but its misuse and abuse. The exhibition aims to raise awareness about behavior not waste and to turn public opinion around plastic by using a design to turn waste into pure emotion.

The installation’s integrated cladding, infrastructure and furnishings are implemented through design to manufacturing methodology and digital manufacturing technologies. The recycled plastic fibers will be 3D printed to form the fluid lines of the structure, blending in with its natural surroundings.
Three main components of the installation are arranged around an impressive tree to contribute, in a bond between nature and technology, to the improvement of the quality of the surrounding environment through the urban air purifier, water mist sprayer and daily lighting system.

The urban air purifier contributes to the renewal of the air while absorbing toxic substances; The water mist system maintains the humidity of the environment, favoring plant growth while lowering the perceived temperature; The lighting and sound system emits sounds and images aimed at educating visitors to a more conscious use and consumption of plastic.
