AN INNOVATIVE INDOOR FOUNTAIN PARTICIPATES IN THE PROJECT OF THE HOUSE OF THE FUTURE AT SOLAR DECATHLON MIDDLE EAST 2018
Forme d’Acqua, a company specializing in the creation and design of fountains and water games, in collaboration with the University La Sapienza of Rome, participates in the Solar Decathlon, the University Olympics of sustainable architecture that, in 2018, will be hosted for the first time in the Middle East in Dubai with the participation of 21 universities from 15 countries around the world. The aim of the competition is to design and build the best full-scale prototype of the future, green, smart and entirely powered by solar energy. The model of house designed by the Italian University and already presented last November at the Microsoft House in Milan, is called “ReStart4Smart”.
Inside there will be Selene, an interactive, sustainable fountain for the indoor from Le Sirene collection by Forme d’Acqua. To make this piece of furniture unique, is the charm of the water flowing on Murano artistic glass, made by the master Nicola Moretti. Thanks to the use of the most advanced technologies, the fountain is able to interact with those who approach it: its luminous beat increases and the water flows with greater intensity. It also interacts with the environment light while maintaining a dynamic balance, aimed at maximum aesthetic performance with the lowest energy consumption. An intuitive, dedicated interface also allows you to control and program all your activities directly from your smartphone and tablet, including the possibility to listen to music or receive messages that inform you about your status. Sustainable beauty, durable materials, high performance – Selene is able to enchant, engage and give emotions.
The Smart Solar House, made entirely of wood, will be built and tested in Pomezia starting this month, before being transported to Dubai where, from 14 to 28 November 2018, furnished and fully functional, will be exhibited to the public along with the other houses and evaluated by an international jury on the basis of 10 contests: architecture, building system, energy efficiency, renewable sources, internal comfort, equipment functionality, electric mobility, environmental sustainability, communication and technological innovation.
According to a revolutionary model defined as Architecture 4.0, the project intends to apply and test the most advanced tools, materials and technologies available today from the building supply chain in order to create a sustainable home that is able to meet the numerous requirements of efficiency, comfort, safety and economy set by the architecture of the XXI century.
