Little is (and) beauty born for the ninth edition of Malagatelier – the annual appointment of Malaga adress at Milan where the doors of the studio are opened -  with the will to show you  how you can have intensity and outcome design even in small pavilions, with different functions. The installation is very simple and through the use of three spatial scenes made from canvass, inside the headquarters of Atelier2, an exhibition space has been identified with explanatory panels and video projections. Atelier2  realized this experienced as leading designer, or in partnership with other firms or with the Politecnico di Milano, often involving young researchers and students in experimental projects. The first example is Akragashelter, a temporary pavilion built at Agrigento in the workshop Architecture for Archeology at Valle dei Templi, with the sponsorship of  UNESCO and collaboration of the University of Tokyo and Politecnico di Milano. The second example is called Scaffold House and it is a structure for the emergency, developed as part of a thesis and then defined during  the international network Android, that deals with Resilience and Post Disaster. With the collaboration of Marcegaglia BUILDTECH, was realized a housing system whose structure is made ​​up of scaffolding and the casing is made with polyurethane sandwich panels. Another example is Ongreening pavilion developed with the MultiEnergy Engineering and conceived by Alfonso Senatore. The role of Atelier2 was to support the team of the Politecnico di Milano, led by prof. Marco Imperadori. It is a wooden pavilion, realized through parametric design. The result is a sort of nest that hold the communicative functions of the Ongreening platform, dedicated to energy efficiency and sustainability. Finally, the experience of GreenFrame at VeluxLab, where were applied innovative technologies GreenBiz of Komatsu Seiren, which Atelier2 has also shown at the Salone del Mobile 2014 during the exhibition Mottainai at the Matalon Foundation. This is a material obtained from recycling sludge that can accommodate hanging  green and drain water. This tiles can also creating permeable and cool soils in order to avoid the phenomena of heat island, generated by the too sealed surfaces.

The used materials show the commitment of Atelier2 to using cyclic materials, exploiting the potential of waste products made ​​noble again.
