Casa Pi

 

The renowned Mexican architect Miguel Ángel Aragonés presented ten years of research materialized in his most recent project entitled “Casa PI” whose acronym translates to a new “intelligent prefabricated” construction project. Patented in Switzerland, this system seeks to break the housing paradigm from an integral design that combines the structure of the house with the furniture and new automation technologies in architecture. The origin of this innovation stems from the idea of creating a modular constructive system that was sustainable, in high quality, that would accelerate construction times, improve acoustic and thermal performance, as well as reduce construction costs and waste. It is based on implementing the technology, we currently live every day with, in an integral design (since conventional homes have had to adapt to these advances through facilities that hinder the design). However, “Casa PI” seeks to start from scratch by serving as a pavilion that shows the advances of this specific moment in history by offering a “piece of furniture to live in” that consumes as little energy as possible.
