Architecture, the pandemic and the future of design: Valerio Campi - Obicua

In only a few months, everything has changed completely. Even the world of architecture. In search of possible new scenarios, Floornature opens the discussion of a new approach to design for a time of public health emergency, publishing a series of interviews with architects all over the world.

The most important feature of Obicua’s project is the focus on reducing the lodge’s environmental footprint by using the strictest LEED sustainable building protocols.
