Collaboration on Bioconstruction with Caio Martins

We are super excited to share with you a new post on Instagram, where Caio Martins, a specialist in Bioconstruction, and I delve into the fascinating world of bringing nature indoors and saving resources in the process.

If you have ever heard of techniques like Rammed Earth or Adobe, you know that these are ancient construction practices that create safe, beautiful, and healthy spaces.

In this video, we show how, with a little knowledge, willingness, and creativity, it is possible to revitalize existing spaces and infuse the warmth that our bodies naturally recognize. Biophilia, or the love of life and the living, can be taken to a new level in housing, bringing a deep sense of connection with the natural environment.

Furthermore, we highlight how the valorization of local labor and the use of regional materials can enrich our living spaces, promoting not only sustainability but also strengthening local communities.

And we have more great news

Caio Martins will be present at the Green Interiors Day São Paulo, sharing even more of his vast knowledge in bioconstruction. And if you’re attending the event in Milan, don’t worry, you’ll also be able to access this incredible talk later via recordings.

Whether at the event in São Paulo or Milan, this is an unmissable opportunity for anyone who wants to delve deeper into the topic of sustainability and bioconstruction. Don’t miss the chance to be inspired and learn from the best in the field.
