FEEDING THE PLANET, ENERGY FOR LIFE.
The whole infrastructure of our civilization is based today on carbon.
Construction, power, heating, light, transport, agriculture fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, and so on, are made from fossil fuels.
Because fossil fuels are elite, they are only found in a few places, and they require huge geopolitical investments to secure them, and huge capital to organize and manage them.
All the fossil fuel energies are becoming expensive and now the entropy bill from those fossil fuel energies – spent CO2 – is threatening us with climate change, which is having a dramatic effect on agriculture yields and infrastructure, with extreme weather conditions.
The technologies that embed fossil fuel energies, like the combustion engine, are exhausted –they’ve lost any potential multiplier effect.
Crude oil hits high prices and the entire economy collapse because all the other prices go up across the supply chain, as all the other goods are either made out of, or moved by, fossil fuels.
Padiglione Italia is a green micro power plant based on peoples actions and energies found in every square inch of the biosphere, the sun, the wind, the heat under the ground, garbage, and the plants.
Padiglione Italia its a building that acts like a Tree, where the internal structure and infrastructure are fed by the renewable energy devices (leafs and fruits) powered by the sun, water, air and soil.
All these is possible thanks to an advanced information technology using the “primitive” local elements offered by our planet.
To be viable all wastes have to be part of the cycle of live. Not polluting and used as source of energy or fertilizer...
In the Padiglione Italia People are invited to participate in the sustainability experience of the building with their actions. A simple action of walking, taking a ride down the lift, or using our smart-phone can make the difference by generating energy for the building and in the same time positive energy for our lives.
In the same way the simple action of planting a seed on the façade of Padiglione Italia can make the difference by generating food for ourselves and food for the building himself.
The building is alive and he is dependent of our actions in the same way that our live on this planet is dependent of the actions of each other of us.
Padiglione Italia is a place for generating ideas by offering a meeting point for people and a showcase for their ideas and inventions.
Padiglione Italia is a showcase of the traditional artefact and the already existing innovations (Italian and international) that will participate in the third industrial revolution by generating jobs in the biggest conversion of history to renewable energy buildings.
Padiglione Italia want to be the first seamless grid node of a new communication/energy infrastructure for a new economic paradigm.
At a time when macro-economic regulations are revealing their limitations, sustainable development is an organic issue dependent on the commitment of all citizen and enterprises
