UF#3 / An Inflatable House Like Myself

Urban Field 3

An house “like myself”  in the shape of an inflatable donut. This installation is the result of a workshop with the students of Urban Exhibition Design Class ‘08 (First School of Architecture in Rome)

Here the link to the project on Exhibition Design Lab and on Urban Fields where you can find a lot of picts!

Exploring a nomadic minimum space of existence (or a space of minimum existence ?) we decide to build up a 1:1 prototype: 25 people working 16 hours cutting and tapering almost 1.000 sqm of polyethilene sheets.

In basic design we trust | in disobedience we teach | in solidarity we live


UNPACKED is an agile and fresh Office supporting a wide range of creative activities. Mainly is a common ground for speculations over cross-fertilizing projects involving diverse disciplines including art, architecture, urban planning, photography, design, business innovation, teaching, communication and more.

UNPACKED unveils the opportunities hidden into the folds of obvious and banal, through architectures, installations, exhibitions, performances, workshops, various experiments of communication and relational design, instant and spontaneous playgrounds, experments inbetween digital and analog.

The office based in Rome started in January 2005 thanks to the Young Entrepreneurs European funds “Sviluppo Italia” and is currently driven by Daniele Mancini and Irene Rinaldi, both architects and educators
