a cultural forest

Airship01 is a mobile climate-landscape installation that travels around Italy in 2016. The installation has been presented for the first time in Padua in June 2016. Now the Airship has travelled to Milan and was opened for visitors at Parco Indro Montanelli. Airship01 is a circular forest piece with about five meters in diameter, equipped with ventilation and spray-fog climate system, enfolded by blank and shiny membrance. Entering the Airship01 installation, visitors can feel a rich sensual expierence with the whole body and can refresh themselves in the middle of a forsest glade, open to the sky – in the center of the city.


At night the translucent membrane has a shiny appearance. Trees, shrubs or leaves of the forest inside become visible on the surface. During the day the sun is reflected by the metallic membrane and creates a fresh atmosphere inside, where selected Austrian forest ecotypes together with the climate installation create a unique sensual experience. Airship01 works completely independently and can be reassembled at any other place within two days. Airship presents a way of interlinking ideas and principles of designen with nature and climate in the urban context.
