Zuecca Projects presents the series of exhibitions “Sustainable Revolution”

Presented by Zuecca Projects, “Sustainable Revolution” is a series of exhibitions and panels by architecture and engineering firms, designers, institutions, and companies happening in the frame of  “How will we live together?” the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. The program “Sustainable Revolution” focuses on the relationship between architecture and sustainability.
The first exhibition – 10 September to 21 November 2021 at Squero Castello – presents seven projects by international architects and institutions focusing on various issues, from residential designs to urban masterplan, offshore aquaculture platforms to autonomous communications and living units.

A-01 (A Company / A Foundation), lead architect Oliver Schütte will present the “No Footprint House (NFH)”. The first prototype of NFH is located in Ojochal, a small village at the edge of the vast tropical rain forests along the South Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Placed in a humid tropical climate, the building design responds to its surrounding habitat by passive climate control through natural ventilation and solar shading. The project seeks integral sustainability in terms of its environmental, economic, social, and spatial performance.

“Shotgun House – Over and Under” by professor and architect Bill Price is a reinterpretation of Houston’s Shotgun Houses located in the Freedman’s Towns (African-American municipalities or communities built by freedmen, former slaves who were emancipated during and after the American Civil War). This kind of building is a long narrow one-story house with rooms lined back to back. Price’s reinterpretation is conceived as two Shotgun houses stacked atop one other. With this variation access to natural light, cross-ventilation, and economization of framing materials is maintained. The project is an example of Cultural and Environmental Sustainability.

The Blue Growth Farm” is an efficient, cost-competitive, and environmentally friendly multi-purpose offshore open sea farm, based on a modular floating structure, where aquaculture and renewable energy production systems are integrated and engineered for profitable applications in the open sea. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and is presented by a consortium of 14 partners from 5 EU countries (RINA, Fincosit, SAFIER, The University of Strathclyde, The Natural Ocean Engineering Laboratory – NOEL, SAGRO AQUACULTURE, Chlamys Srl, SAMS, Wavenergy.it LTD, Ecole Centrale de Nantes, Treelogic, TECNALIA, Politecnico di Milano, Ditrel Industrial S.L.).

Led by Dorian Grinspan, “OTTO” is a housing company that firmly believes that everyone deserves access to quality more affordable housing that meets the needs of contemporary life and work. Through a combination of ground-up modular build, machine learning, and adaptive reuse, OTTO reimagines the fabric of the American suburb with accessibility and sustainability at the center.

Conceived by the artist Marko Peljhan, the project “Makrolab” was first presented at Documenta X in Kassel in 1997, and later in 6 other locations. Conceived as a complex systemic environment and machine to explore global communications, weather/climate, and migrations systems, Makrolab was a project well ahead of its time, both in understanding the complexity of the interrelated global systems as well as its transdisciplinary reach, which encompassed telecommunications research, open-source software development (dyne.org) as well as complete autonomy through alternative energy systems for long-duration sustainability, water production, and waste management. As part of the sustainable revolution, we are presenting the satellite self-portrait of the lab from space realized in 2003 as well as the model of the mkIIex architecture and its evolution.

Architect firm Coldefy, the protagonist of the Biennale’s Official Collateral event “Tropicalia”, will show “Novaxia’s Wonder Building”. The project is a technical feat and meets the highest environmental requirements. This 27.000m2 building has a concrete, metal, and wood structure with numerous cantilevers, but the vast majority of it is wood – chosen for its low carbon qualities. 20.000m2 of cross-laminated wooden floor and 200m3 of wooden pillars absorb 739kg of CO2 during the lifecycle of the building, while also allowing a lighter structure and swift execution of the build, as these elements are prefabricated and assembled on site.

Founded in 2021, CCD – Creative Cluster Development is a creative industry accelerator with the purpose of generating artistic/creative hubs from empty and closed buildings. In the past six months, they decided to take the project global: at the moment different venues around the world are being analyzed and in advance negotiations to be turned into these vessels that together with an advance online platform will be able to sell all of the wonderful creations produced by artists. Furthermore, a percentage of the revenue created by CCD will be destined to collaborate with crucial causes and NGOs around the world.
