We like to think that TECLA is the beginning of a new story. It would be truly extraordinary to shape the future by transforming this ancient material with the technologies we have available today. The aesthetics of this house are the result of a technical and material effort; it was not an aesthetic approach only. It is an honest form, a sincere form. – Mario Cucinella, Founder and Creative Director of Mario Cucinella Architects
In the framework of the Italian Design Day 2021, dedicated this year to the theme of sustainability, the Italian Cultural Institute of Buenos Aires organizes a meeting with the architect and designer Mario Cucinella, Ambassador of Italian Design.
Cucinella will present the TECLA project, an innovative circular housing model that brings together research on vernacular construction practices, the study of bioclimatic principles and the use of natural and local materials. TECLA is a pioneering example of low-carbon housing, 3D printed from raw earth.
The presentation will be followed by a dialogue with the Argentine guests Edgardo Minond and Cristián Mohaded, both leading representatives in the field of design and architecture in Argentina.
