Lanterns Sea Village


Toward a reversible housing for a more sustainable world

Lanterns Sea Village


Toward a reversible housing for a more sustainable world
A conceptual proposal to develop a new radical approach in which the ego of the architect is open to destroy his work, if necessary.

How sustainability is actually a really pursued objective and not just declared? The term sustainable is extensively used to indicate technical requirements that provide information about energy-efficient buildings, but that does not really give us any information about the low impact of the building on the environment and landscape. Lanterns Sea Village tries to formulate a radical answer to the demand of sustainability in architecture related to the natural and anthropic landscape, inverting the classic relationship between architecture and the foundation ground, that for centuries has characterized the act of building. The human need of protect themselves, to have a shelter, determines the most land consumption and the higher physics modification of the original landscape. The concept of sustainability in this project, is inextricably linked to the idea of "territorial reversibility": the building could be completely disassembled without leave any trace on the landscape.
