NABA students of the BA in Design have been selected as finalists by the jury of Terra Migaki Design 2020, a contest born from the cultural exchange between Italy and Japan in order to promote green architecture focusing on the development of earth construction techniques to increase young designers’ consciousness on environmental sustainability.

Han Xiao and Giorgio Talamelli presented “Den”, a table lamp designed to recreate the ancestral atmosphere of primitive society, using raw earth as its only component. Veronica Lascaro, Andrea Popescu and Nadia Belbattah proposed “Connessione Sei” (Connection Six) an interlocking game for children based on the shape of the cube, a path to discover the use of materials, created with a mixture of raw earth, straw and jute rope. Elisa Valentini, Andrea Perego and Federico Schirinzi were selected with “HeartH”, parallelepiped of raw earth, made using the pisé technique that has an internal cavity designed to be filled by a candle to heat it up and keep drinks warm.
Andrea Pirovano and Giammarco Verardini created “Earth Three”, a clothes hanger to keep them warm before putting on, exploiting the properties of the raw earth to accumulate heat and release it slowly.

All the selected projects have been included in the virtual exhibition of the competition website, to then be displayed at the Museo Studio Francesco Messina.
