TreeIT is a metaphor for the work of architect Dario Pompei, drawn up as dissertations with Professor Antonino Saggio at the La Sapienza University of Rome.” says nITro. “The project shows how you can tackle the crisis of polluting poisons that has affected the lake of Vico.

The project seeks an active reforestation, decontamination and reclamation of the lake and surrounding area as well as the creation of paths with wooden walkways. These pathways enhance the zone of the slopes at lake by creating micro architectures placed in the context and allow compatible development with the naturalistic vocations of the zone.

The project consists of a harmonious boardwalk that winds dynamically in different directions, emphasizing the potential of the space and lends itself to different ways of use. The walkway, made of OSB wooden panels, exhorts the visitor to cross the interactive forest consisting of more than one hundred synthetic trees, which evoke the operation of the project and at the same time reveal that only the active presence of the community may impose a smart solution.

Visitors are detected by three ultrasonic proximity sensors connected via Arduino to the LED lighting system placed on top of the artificial trees. The square thus becomes a sensing space that lends itself to many fruitions and that responds to the solicitations of bodies that pass through it.

TreeIT was made and shown for the first time at The Cube Festival, a cultural event held in December 2013 in Ronciglione in the Piazza degli Angeli.
