PILLOW HOUSE (OR ZEBRA HOUSE) | HOV
Pillow House represents a study about a residence with a radial distribution of the internal spaces following the archaic models which can still be found with some rural populations spread from the Equatorial Africa till the Amazonian area of the South American continent .
The central reference point, which is principally dedicated to an open-pit fireplace there, has been here associated to the collection and the first processing of meteoric waters, just summing up their two valences - usefulness and symbolism - within the same space.
The whole space has got variable conformations and the number of inhabitants is not pre-determined. Following the different cases in fact the internal space can receive one to about twelve people.
