DES IGN AN D R EALIZAT ION

KOKOON _

Aalto University, Wood Program _ Group work _ 2016 _

Transportable living units built from timber, for temporary housing in a urban context.

The theme for the project derives from the contemporary social challenges in Finland, focusing on the shortage of temporary housing for asylum seekers, as well as for students and families whose homes undergo renovation. The design is a system of housing modules built primarilly from timber, for urban application. The units can be stacked and create different configurations according to the need. The Wood Program studio constructed three of these modules at full scale to form a tower that demonstrated the system of the project. The initial concept has been developed by Käbi Noodapera Ramel and selected by the professors Pekka Heikkinen and Philip Tidwel.

_ #THE HOME INSIDE A FRAME _ Aalto University, Wood Program (competition) _ Individual work _ 2015

Transportable frames built from timber, to temporarily inhabit vacant buildings.

Project studied for the competition From Border to Home focusing on the shortage of temporary housing for asylum seekers. The project focuses on vacant office buildings where repurposing can be an ecologically sustainable alternative to demolition and rebuilding. The design is a system of furnished modules built in timber, ready to be plugged in existing vacant interior spaces. The frames can be arranged in different compositions according to the need.

URBAN FU R N IT UR E

_ B·lök _ Politecnico di Milano _ Individual work (Bachelor’s Thesis) _ 2014

Autoconstructed urban furniture built from timber, to improve the sharing of public spaces.

The topic of the project originates from the lack of integration within S. Siro district in Milan. The purpose is to generate sociable areas with contemporary design phenomena. The concept consists in occupying one or more parking lots nearby small businesses (pizzerie, gelaterie, laundries, pubs, etc.) to create firstly an autoconstruction event and secondly a connection between the activity and the object. The design is a simple system of wooden frames forming nesting objects. The project was selected to be built for a workshop in Chiaravalle (Milan). The structure constructed for this event is a simplification and demostration of the system.

CO N CEPTUA L

_ WorkBit _ Politecnico di Milano _ Group work _ 2013

Conceptual space focused on a deep analysis of offices, for improving the quality of working spaces.

The research for the project focused on the annoying sounds that office workers handle every day. The concept is the result of studies about the sound and its ways of representation: soft as curves (frequency curves) and sharp like scales (equalizer). The design is a relaxing space of 14,4 sqm, where gentle curves contrast with sharp edges, built as a single piece but composed by thousands of elements. Model details: Dim. 400x400x400 Scale: 1:10 Total pieces: 2824 Material: Cherry timber
