Creating habitable conditions in mobile spatial structures with minimal bulk which are totally self-sufficient energetically: this is the goal of the two Portuguese architects Cannatà and Fernandes, who presented their works at the construction materials fair in Porto in 2003.

Cannatà and Fernandes.<br> CAPA and DST habitation modules. 2003 The two prototypes are a response to the need to encourage production of innovative sustainable architecture systems.
They represent two alternatives to a series of solutions that currently fail to respond to the criterion of environmental integration. CAPA, one of the modules, is intended to be inhabited, and is made out of metal; DST, conceived as a little bar, is made of wood. Each module is constructed in two parts: a base resting on the ground containing infrastructures, and a functional volume specific to its intended use.

Energetic self-sufficiency is guaranteed by a large photovoltaic panel with accumulation batteries to guarantee 3 days of self-sufficiency. The modules recycle water and use energy-saving electrical appliances.
