Orange Fiber x TECLA – 3D Printed Eco-Sustainable Housing Model
TECLA – Technology and Clay, a project by Mario Cucinella Architects & WASP
From the combination of empathic architecture, new technologies and sustainability comes TECLA – Technology and Clay, the first eco-sustainable house 3D printed from local raw earth, created by Mario Cucinella Architects and WASP in Massa Lombarda (Ravenna).
TECLA is an innovative circular housing model that brings together research on vernacular construction practices, the study of bioclimatic principles and the use of natural and local materials. It is a nearly zero-emission project: its casing and the use of an entirely local material allows for the reduction of waste and scraps. This and the use of raw earth make TECLA a pioneering example of low-carbon housing.
In harmony with the vision and commitment of TECLA project, Orange Fiber poplin has been selected to create the pillows and the mattress cover of the sleeping area.
