We designed three shacks, archaic, almost primitive wood structures that define the triangular space of an interior courtyard or market place. These shacks are long and slender buildings remindful of the Lombardian farm house the «Cascina». After the Expo they will be dismounted and reassembled as garden sheds in school gardens all over Italy mentored by Slow Food with their initiative «Orto in condotta» as the principal national scholastic program for alimentary and environmental education.
The pitched roof and trapeziodal plan together form an internal space that, with its perspective effects, reiterates the programme's theme. A pair of reinforced concrete beams support the roof structure and the north lights. The office wing ist clad with a horizontal timber boarding. The studio itself is clad, even on the east and south façade, with grained plywood boards. The west façade has bitumen sheeds on the whole surface.
