The inflatable structure is a simple, coloured and versatile element,
which can be installed in the city open spaces apart from their morphology
or surface (lawn, paving, asphalt, water).
The concept is the use of a simple but intriguing object in the chosen
areas, so that an interest might be stimulated without aggression or
any particular devices.
The result is a system that can varies in dimensions and be used in
different ways according to the different needs (illumination set, open-close
kit, rigid metal structure, fire system, information system, etc)
Different versions of the same structure can be realised: a model with
the external surface of semiconductor polymers cells that appears like
a big display distorted for interactive plays or messages and information;
or, the application of flexible photovoltaic cells for the prototype
of an energetic unity.
The assemblage is realised by inflating the object. The water ( which
could be also used for the fire system, if included) in the element
in contact with the ground, secures stability. This building technology
is used for sea rescue boats of reinforced rubber or for protection
The two main support element are departmental and are realised in reinforced
rubber with a thin net of mix material, tear-proof, fire-proof and very
resistant to vandalism. Its thin plastic cover stretches when inflated
and can be matched with any printed or designed film.
