“I am what I throw away”

The installation was realized as part of the INTERNI Cross Vision exhibition for the FuoriSalone in the Cortile d’Onore of the University of Milan. Inspired by the “Living structures” of American designer Ken Isaacs, based on matrices for building low-cost living structures with minimal environmental impact, “I am what I throw away” reinterprets the concept of matrix in architecture using reclaimed materials, combining craftsmanship with industrial experimentation.
