Connection

Architectural Design

Nowadays the problem of immigration cannot be ignored anymore. Thousands of people arrive every year in Italy from Africa  to escape their home countries, devastated by wars and famine. Since the Italian burocracy is slow and disorganized most of the accomodation camps are overcrowded.

Connection is a walkable tensostructure for 
refugee camps, designed to create a new living surface during the daily hours. Connection is composed by several poles and a net made by rope woven with fluorescent strings. Thanks to that the net glows languidly during the night, radiating a soft and relaxing light which helps the over stressed refugees to find relief in their sleep.
