multifunctional reusable structures
Our aim is to create a reusable, temporary device that can be used in the most various functions and forms.

Reusable, economic, ephemeral, transitory. Our concept was to create something easy to assemble and with economic means could make an impact where to establish itself. The use of cheap and banal materials, common in the market was one of the premises.
Using a system of removable panels of electrowelded mesh, we create our structure, can easily take on other functional organizations, depending on the space to intervene.
To these panels we join a power grid , electric light spots and internet network as well as fluorescent lamps fixed by metal clamps .
After, a wire mesh in hexagonal steel is placed around the panels, creating a desired unit to separate panel units.
To finalize we apply on the wire mesh, plastic film, which is usually used for packing.
The entire space can create different colors and atmospheres for easy placement of cellophane filters on the fluorescent lamps, different atmospheres.
Cloud structure can be used for temporary pavilions, housing, services.
