South Face by Iosa Ghini

South Face was an installation designed by Italian architect Iosa Ghini, as part of the Interni Design Energies exhibition at the University of Milan, during the Salone del Mobile show in April.

The purpose of the Design Energies exhibition, was to feature installations from a variety of designers that would get people thinking about energy efficiency and use of sustainable materials.

The installation exemplifies an architectural portion with a façade solution based on solar exposure. It consists of an insulated modular wall composed of hollow panels in eco-cement with quarry substrates, accommodating dense and dramatic-looking foliage. The façade is oriented to the south, forming a vertical garden that absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and insulates the environment it encloses from humidity. The interior of the structure is fitted with informal seating designed to beckon passers-by to stop and rest in a natural setting. The concept of sustainability is usually associated with sterile forms in which aesthetics are often overlooked. Our installation creates spectacular aesthetic effects, making sustainability both beautiful and feasible.
