Workshop Full Fill Homes für die Biennale di Venezia 2016

Workshop Full Fill Homes für die Biennale di Venezia 2016
The Technische Universität (TU) Berlin

The workshop was developed under the supervision of the Design and Construction- Concrete Department together with Anupama Kundoo and Alba Balmaseda architects from Madrid. Ferrocement boxes and samples were produced and later used for the construction of a prototype in the Biennale di Venezia 2016.
These boxes are designed to be used for the construction of sustainable housing as well as for affordable housing in developing countries.

The ferrocement samples, also exposed in the Venice Biennale, consist on different kind of concrete reinforcements.
For the construction process, 4 indian workers have contributed with their extensive experience in ferrocement construction.
