The presentation will elaborate on how Maccaferri’s gabion units and high strength geogrids function as environmentally friendly and architecturally useful applications. Dr. Lelli will provide attendees with an understanding of how Gabion and Steel Mesh products such as Terramesh can be used as landslides risk remedial solutions, for regenerating the natural environment and as cladding on buildings and other structures.

Versatile and sustainable, these applications not only lead to reductions in terms of CO2 emissions, but also provide designers and architects with a myriad of landscaping, retaining or totally free standing solutions to their queries.

The presentation will include references to specific projects—e.g. “The building that Grows” project in France where the concept of creating a living skin for a building was achieved by merging rocks, steel wire and concrete together.
