Beyond Entropy Angola

Pavilion of the Republic of Angola at the International Architecture Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia. 

The project Beyond Entropy Angola consists of a 1:1 scale reconstruction of a new urban model for the high-density suburban areas of Luanda, the capital of Angola with seven million inhabitants. It acts simultaneously as a green space and a piece of infrastructure.
This project consists in planting a commonly-occuring cane, Arundo Donax, into the interstitial spaces between the suburban buildings of Luanda, producing a new type of public space which performs simultaneously as a garden, as an infrastucture to filter brown water, and as a producer of electricity in the form of biomass.
