Superbarrio, Co-mida & 3D Printed Ecological House selected to be part of the New European Bauhaus Festival Fair 2022

The New European Bauhaus Festival will take place in Brussels, Belgium from the 9th to 12th of June. This fair showcases current and future projects addressing beauty, sustainability and togetherness. We are happy to announce that three projects developed by IAAC were selected out of more than 300 proposals as part of the lineup of 40 projects of the fair.

The prototypes being displayed, developed by the IAAC Advanced Architecture Group (AAG) directed by Areti Markopoulou, are:

Superbarrio is a video game for smartphones and tablets that architects and public bodies can use to engage citizens in the design of public spaces, allowing them to visualise their interventions.

Projects: URBiNAT and PPS

CO-mida combines nature-based solutions with robotic 3D printing technology and parametric design softwares, to create an automated green wall aimed at growing food and producing energy.
