  • Following Micrographia, the installation of the innovative Habitat Façade claddings

    During the last edition of the MDW, Park Associati presented Micrographia - Redesigning for biodiversity, an exhibition to tell the story of the experimental research on biodiversity conducted by Johanna Seelemann, with the production supervision of Park Associati and the scientific support of Vivaio Bicocca. One of the three experimental works resulting from this research is the innovative Habitat Façade cladding made by Ricehouse, a non-profit company that transforms waste from rice processing into natural materials for green building. Following that experimental phase, Ricehouse has installed some Habitat Façade elements on the terraces of Torri Risorsa, in the building redevelopment area of the Barona district in Milan. This very important first step in grounding the project will be monitored by Vivaio Bicocca during the summer heat peaks to assess its results and performance.
