From June 7th-12th 2022 SOS School of Sustainability had the wonderful opportunity to participate in the 2022 SaloneSatellite.
We exhibited our students’ project from this year’s SOS8 Master’s Program in Sustainable Architecture and Design for the Post - Carbon Architecture, The Right to Quality Shelter and Design of Products and Systems for the Circular Economy project tracks.
The 3d models displayed during the fair were the representations of the intensive work carried out during this #SOS8 edition:
The Right to Quality Shelter (QS) students’ group presented a 3d printed housing unit that could be adopted in Roma camps to solve the urban criticality of crowding and integration of this social reality, respecting the practical needs and culture of this community.
Post Carbon Architecture (PC) students’ group showcased two skyscrapers for the cities of Ulan Bator and Tehran, the new generation of tall buildings - adaptive and seamlessly integrated into the urban and climatic context - meeting the needs of the inhabitants, the city below and the planet around them.
Design of Products and Systems for the Circular Economy (DP) students’ group together with the experts of Artemide S.p.A. realized a prototype of a lamp designed for urban green areas, which conceptualizes the sense of regeneration and reconnection of the citizen with the nature in public spaces using the presence – or absence - of light.
Salvatore Ferragamo project work in which students developed the concept of a sustainable temporary pop-up store embedding the values, colors, images and signs of Salvatore Ferragamo's brand identity and bearing its commitment to sustainability and circular economy.
On June 12th, SOS organized a Final Presentation and closing ceremony within the SaloneSatellite Arena. The students presented their work from this academic year in front of a panel composed by Arch. Mario Cucinella, the SOS Faculty members, family and friends as well as general public, of designers, architects and professionals who attended to learn more about our School. The event was a huge success and a fitting end to an a challenging but very rewarding school year, additionally moments like these help us continue to carry on the SOS message and mission and lay the groundwork for possible future collaborations.
It was a great honor to be part of such international and inspiring event, bringing our thoughts and ideas on sustainable design and meeting passionate and curious people who believe in sustainable practices and are willing to take action in tackling the increasingly urgent challenges of the future.
As always, we are not alone in our mission and we want to thank everyone that worked with the SOS staff to make this possible! And to our students: We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors!
