The Bio Tech House, a concept home looking to the future, presented eight years ago by Zanotta with the project designed by Studio BPM; a pioneer and still an effective example of integration between nature, living spaces and technology.
Zanotta participated with the Bio Tech House in the exhibition 'Abitare il XXi secolo' that was held at 'Abitare il tempo' in Verona, September 2002. The project is a futuristic living layout, both in terms of living concept and highly efficient bio-climatic structure from an energy standpoint. Architects Fabrizio Bertero, Andrea Panto, and Simona Marzoli have integrated the proposal with vegetation, natural light, and warmth. The project was developed off of the concept of the Court of Mies van der Rohe; a garden in the heart of the house, a powerful core on which the rooms open. It also revisits the concept proposed by the group MVRDV at the Expo held in Hannover in 2000; a building in which vegetation is an integral part of an ecosystem that captures and transforms natural energy sources.
