Primitive Abitative

Nucleo has been asked by Alessandro Mendini and Silvia Annichiarico to be part of the Babilonia Project with a new project called “Primitive Abitative”, from the March 26 to April 27th during the exhibition Quali cose siamo (The Things We Are) at the Triennale Design Museum.

From the designers:

“Primitive Abitative” (Primitive Housing) is a tower that gives up the certainty, unsettling the structural monotony with the integration of the diversity: diverse people become different forms. Primitive Housing are iconic typologies generated from the same common root, they are local expressions of the universal inhabit act.

The project reveals the Tower grammar, disclosing the possibility to share an unexpected, vital and innovative upward direction. It’s a collapsed tower in which every part acts to the construction of a not-hierarchical architecture.

The project is inspired by a well-known board game but with the opposite objective: to create the higher tower with a limited number of pieces, finally becoming the metaphor of the current human condition.

A world able to raise only with the cooperation and the participation of all the parts, managing the available resource.
