The real building is included within the context "Lonely Living: l'architettura dello spazio primario" ("Lonely Living: the architecture of the primary space"), organized by Aid'A togheter with the 8th International Architecture Exhibition of "La Biennale di Venezia ", 2002 edition. The 20-room buildings, built entirely in 1:1 ratio in water-resistant reconstituted wood chips (produced by the "Gruppo Frati), corresponding to real "customers", each assigned to one of the architects involved.
This particular case is projected by Prof. Arch Alberto Cechetto and re-analyzed by Domenico Fornarelli, a student of “Politecnico di Bari” in the University of “Building Engineering and Architecture” (located in Bari, Italy) with the direction of Prof. Arch. Lorenzo Netti (Professor of “Architectural Drawing II + Laboratory” and “Architecture and Architectural Composition I + Laboratory”). The building is projected for five homeless people in search of a common place to sleep in an area essential, basic, consisting of few elements, protected, but open.
The object is placed on a platform in the garden of the Arsenale, has a broken shell, the interior is broken, the coverage is partial, is placed in the fifth batch of the fourth row in framing general and consists of:
- a wall (consisting of 5 panels: a rear protection, spaced by two lateral support perpendicular to the ground, two tilted and rotated to the axis of the shares, lacking parallelism and orthogonality between the parts) to protect from the wind with an opening to the outside and see a niche to store their items;
- a bench seat from 0 to 77 cm at the first panel to sit (as a form of adaptation to ergonomics dictated by the distance of 45 cm tail bone-patella) or lie down and sleep in a sleeping bag, raised to 28 cm from the floor, so that requesters can fix the cartoons;
- a shed for shelter from the elements and circular holes near a tree bound, the protection of which has involved a placement of the structure in a different location than planned;
- an angle not parallel to the tracking screen of the lot, made with strips of length 130 and 350 cm, width 14 cm, 5 cm thick (the same as the rear panels and the seat of the bench because of the material supplier) interspersed with spacers randomly deployed and measures 6X5X14 cm.
