The structure is similar to many.
What is the connection?!
We have often become islands made up of ONE
Thus from the SOS LIFESAVING project the RECHARGABLE ISLAND project is born, public spaces in which to fell we belong.
“islands” real surface to experience, a kind of collective carpet whose center is the energy, the only Universal trait together with is “black companion”.
An extremely low cost ambient in which to: stretch out, sit, read, play, dream.. with shapes and colours designed and drawn according to culture, society or location…..
As diverse as the authors: artists, architects, designers, children…
With an S.O.S. column in the centre, similar to the motorway columns, column which also supports art, such as a traditional cube that contains a work of art in a case.
Inserted into the base mp3 players that can be used freely by all, with sounds, local stories, tales or itineraries, or suggestions of people/places to go to in an emergency.
Columns we can go to recharge our camera or our mobile phone in an emergency, by means of the photovoltaic panels placed on top of the display case.
An SOS column, AN ISLAND in which to RECHARGE, in Mind Body Spirit and Technology

I lie down and read looking up at the sky, I recharge my mobile phone and I call my family to tell them I am late, otherwise there will be no end to it, I listen to the latest track by a new artist, I look at the work of art inside the cube and I listen to the story, I think I am going to take my shoes off, today is a beautiful day but I do not want to be alone, so I sit and I live my city together with other people and it is funny to see the expressions on the tourists faces as they make way , to understand and find out about history and stories, that someone is finally listening to, as I tell them in the column, a grandfather mp3.
B)“Virtuous architecture”THE COMPLETE S.O.S PROJECT is born with the aim of prosposing to Nations the creation of floating islands (forming the morse code S.O.S), LIFE SAVING ISLANDS. Placed at the borders of international waters as shelter for refugees. Visible from satellite (9 spots of about 300x200 cm each) enabling more than economic saving (see International Sanctions) saving of HUMAN LIVES. No more boats left adrift in seas and oceans with no aim other than hope, always watching the most vulnerable like pregnant women, children or elderly dying. They will be able to find HERE temporary shelter on these TRUE ISLANDS OF CIVILIZATION. Becoming places to reach and easy spots to check even from satellite, being couloured let's imagine in green or yellow, and when the satellite will show a different colour that will mean they are occupied and there is human load.
“urban micro-actions”A reduced scale of the same priciple but created to satisfy other needs and requirements. In any S.O.S PORTABLE PILLARS of regeneration in PHOTOVOLTAIC.(resting, socializing, listening, enjoying art, recharging your own technological devices, creating energy doable in every town of the planet as the answer to specific requests and needs of an entire population or a single local community, those being in poor areas of western cities or in the shantytowns of Africa, Asia or South America.Satisfaction of needs is the goal of S.O.S PILLARS, the common thread that links all civilizations is - pro and cons – the need for ENERGY. The pillars will therefore be different: in shape, coulour, contents (auditive for mp3, visual for showcase, and practical in the inner part of the underneath cube, functional to the place and to specific needs like any piece of forniture they will be able to store “things”, from nurse equipment to condoms distributed freely – for those areas in some parts of Africa and Asia where the taboo generates death – like sponsored gadget that make their realization possible.IN ANY SOCIETY energy is an emergency, the energy we use as well as the HUMAN energy we have, the pillars contribute to satisfy that common need. And to create new inputs.
Low cowst and low Tech urban micro-actions Extremely low costs, passive environmental impact. Technology aiming at reusing energy and applying it for practical and creative purposes.
- daily practical emergency and medical needs Possibility to recharge techology of different use through solar energy, according to the needs of the pillar, from digital cameras to mobile phones for touristic places to medical devices for emergency places, modifying panels' dimensions to the pillar purposes.
- mobility and communication inside the cityIslands and pillars centrally placed have different dimensions and sizes of their base but are always PORTABLE.Comunication and mobility with MP3Powered by solar energy They will contain more tracks/skip sensorial installations.
