Innovation and European Research: Focchi Group expertise for Eensulate and Deep Renovation Joint Workshop
The Eensulate project‘s consortium met for its General Assembly in the Hotel Cardinal St. Peter in Rome on October 4th. The Eensulate project funded by Horizon 2020 programme has the purpose to develop innovative lightweight and highly insulating energy efficient components for cost-effective retrofitting and new construction of curtain wall facades.

Milan Design Week, Interni “House In Motion“ exhibition. Open 10am-10pm daily, 16-28 April 2018
Università degli Studi di Milano – Ca’ Granda ex Ospedale Maggiore, Milan
Stanton Williams’ pavilion interprets the Interni exhibition theme House in Motion by giving physical form to the idea of movement through space. Space and movement combine to form a work of choreographic architecture. A spiral pathway is spatially compressed and released as it winds into the centre of the pavilion. Here, at the focal point, the ‘baldacchino’ – a canopy of light – hovers over a horizontal plane that suggests rest and contemplation. The pavilion floats above the ground surface to reinforce its abstract and poetic nature. Interlocking forms define the captured spaces. Blackened steel is used throughout to reinforce the pavilion’s sculptural qualities.
The engineering, manufacturing and installation of the pavilion is by Focchi Group with lighting provided by iGuzzini.
Dance Performance: Study of Body in Space
In a dance and music work inspired by the dynamic ebb and flow of the Pavilion, a solitary dancer challenges his body’s relationship with space and forges new connections and pathways with the architecture around him in a reactive and ever-shifting state.
Performance dates: 16 & 17 April 2018 – times: 6, 7 & 8pm
Duration: 10 minutes
Choreography: Thea Stanton
Dancer: Joe Garbett
Music: Cameron Graham
