The main problem of the INSTANT HOUSE for EXPO is the placement of a house in the context of a motorway, where exhaust fumes and noise are present. This space is obviously not favourable for the proper functioning of man. The air pollution is absorbed by people mainly during breathing.
Taking into account the character of the building, which the INSTANT HOUSE is supposed to be, I combined the INSTANT elements which help man everyday in functioning in great contamination with smog as well as in noise. I transferred the air filtering mask and the sound-proof headphones to the function of the house. I decided to put the filter insert into a simple sound-proof form.
The function of an interior was divided into zones, which were indicated by me by means of one element in the form of a filter. The form consists of 60 elements of glue laminated timber combined with wooden blocks, which create a distance for an appropriate air circulation inside the filter structure.
The elements screwed up in one form are coated with a “breathing” filtering material (cotton and felt). The simple closed solid of a house built of pre-cast elements, is to be completely sound-proof. The polluted air is contributes to quick corrosion of building materials, therefore I decided to use pre-cast reinforced concrete elements outside the solid, whose character will be integrated with the sceneries of the motorway. The light gets inside through the u-glass plane, which has very good sound-proof properties.
