Modular Carpet - Sustainablesolutions for urban living

​By Elena Elgani, Chantal Forzatti, Maria Letizia Novarese &​​​ Paola Zocchi​

 

Modular Carpet is a versatile and sustainable housing system, placed on top of the covering of buildings to satisfy the need for new free space within the densely built urban fabric. It consists of an equipped base hosting the plans necessary for establishing individual modular housing units, which are designed to be easily assembled in different ways. Originally designed for the urban context of Milano, this project can be easily adjusted and scaled to be applied to any other city in the world.​​​

Metsä Wood challenged architects and students around the world to push the boundaries of modern wood building design in the urban environment. Entrants from 40 countries created their Plan B to urbanisation using wood (Kerto® LVL – laminated veneer lumber) as the main material. The task was to design a wooden extension to an existing urban building. The entries were designed to 69 cities worldwide.
