Instead of the traditional waiting shed, designers from Iosa Ghini Asssociati has created the South Face, shade like architectural installation made of insulated modular wall that faces the south. The wall is composed of hollow panels that are made from eco-cement and quarry substrates. These components are known to have the ability to accommodate thick, lush foliage, and because of this, this eco-façade forms a vertical garden that is responsible of absorbing carbon dioxide and eventually uses it to insulate the façade’s enclosed environment. The South Face has inviting built-in seating areas wherein passersby are invited and encouraged stop by and relax.
