On the occasion of Expo2015, Save the Children Italia Onlus presents a Pavilion that could be better defined as a proper “village”, a domestic and welcoming environment which designs the space of an ideal place of the world where the Ong usually operates.
A sequence of rooms without walls and barriers but in conversation with the surroundings and the other pavillions.
A space that is permeable and open, where the external landscape is an integral part of the internal world, such as the territory is a strong part of families’ and comunities’ life in those countries where Save the Children works. Save the Children’S Village for Expo2015 has been conceived starting from a research of simple materials as wood, bamboo and metal sheet, together with a floor made by concrete and soil, with the aim to remind the warmth and colours of far away territories.
A village where we can also find the theme of “self-production”: the perimetral panels made of fir wood and bamboos have been made through a workshop with foreigner kids who are part of the immigration policies program of “Civico Zero”,Onlus
