Quadraro, Rome, Italy, 2012.

The construction works have started at the end of January 2011, and for some months the inhabitants of Quadraro were treated to a curious construction site instead of the classic brick used straw bales. With this project we also wanted to dispel the cliché that the straw is suitable to build only in rural contest. It is, in fact, a material also valid for the urban context.

The site has hosted the program Quadraro Workshop Series, a series of three workshops: the first on the straw bale construction technique, one earthenware plaster and the last on the floor radiant.
