SUPSI to Present MASS-IPV Project at Milan Design Week 2024

We are pleased to announce that SUPSI (University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland), a partner in the MASS-IPV project, will participate in Milan Design Week 2024 – Fuorisalone.

SUPSI will be making its debut at Milan Design Week 2024 with the pavilion: ‘Building with the Sun’, aiming to promote solar architecture with a small exhibition titled “From Function to Beauty: 40 Years of Solar Panels in Architecture”. The event, organized by Sun Appeal, aspires to present the potential of solar energy design, transforming solar panels from praxis to poetry. In the age of sustainability, we open a dialogue across tradition and innovation, nature and technology. Photovoltaics used as “right-tech”, inspired by technology and design, is the chase of new beauty. By showcasing solar products from Skala and Gruppo Sogimi, Onyx Solar, Solskin by Zurich Soft Robotics and 3S Swiss Solar Solutions, the space is a seed inspiring creativity to transform our cities.

We would like to invite you to our pavilion and one of the many daily events we have organised in the sector of solar architecture.

CONCEPT: SUPSI aspires to present the potential of solar energy design, transforming solar panels from praxis to poetry. In the age of sustainability, they open a dialogue across tradition and innovation, nature and technology. Photovoltaics used as “right-tech”, inspired by technology and design, is the chase of new beauty. Alongside the 40-year history of using photovoltaics as a construction material, pioneering technologies aim to inspire architecture and design. Going beyond the mere fusion of approaches between disciplines, guided by transdisciplinarity, SUPSI aims to stimulate environmental contingencies, expressive capabilities, and technological capacities through unified intentionality.
