A R C A is a treasure chest where the memory of a complex environmental system is kept. It’s a portable storage where the seeds of a universe, made of earth related images and memories, are preserved."

During a trimester 20 students designed ‘open-projects’ made out of standard components which are industrially produced and parts which are very simple to produce, as DIY (‘do it yourself’). The result is a collection of 'open source' objects that are reproducible with an easy manufacturing process, with a very high facility to replace or repair parts by anyone at an affordable price. Each project is then uploaded in the internet sharing its construction manual and technical sheets in order to be replicate by anyone in the world. To see the project click here.
