The architecture, synthesis of a deep knowledge of the place, represent an “oasis” in the desert of lava fields and it is a metaphor to a landscape in and of production. The elements of the architecture compose a device to generate water, through principles of idrogenesi, exploiting the condensation of air humidity during the night. With the project I tried to turn the limits of an arid territory into strengths to get a succession of positive effects on a large scale, enhancing the natural and cultural heritage of the island.
