New research for Tropicalia, the largest single-dome greenhouse on the planet, will be on show at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
Tropicalia proposes 20,000 sqm of tropic covered by an innovative dome rising to 35 meters. Its dome was designed to address optimal thermal isolation, energy self-sufficiency, and energy that’s recycled and stocked. The surplus energy will be exported via a heat network into buildings and surrounding businesses.
Illustrated by architectural model, drawings, sketches, videos and diverse working and presentation materials, the exhibition transmits an environmental and educational message: it shows how science can answer the question “How will we live together?”, the title of Biennale Architettura 2021
