The Seed of Solidarity is a temporary pavilion designed for Cefa Onlus, a non-governmental organization dealing with international cooperation and volunteering. The Municipality of Bologna hosted the pavilion in Piazza Nettuno, right next to the city's main square, to help the NGO meet Bologna's citizens and tell them about its activities, during the two weeks prior to World Food Day. The Seed is designed to accommodate a dozen people, the depth of the ribs that compose it creates two tables at different heights and a bench. Its circular shape creates an intimate atmosphere despite its large visual permeability. The ribs are at the same time the supporting structure, the furniture and the shading system, and they are separated by wood battens, the only other element, in addition to the screws, which composes the constructive system.
