Dear Press and Media professionals,

my name is Leonardo. I am a 27-years-old italian architect and engineer experiencing the fascinating world of tiny architecture since my involvement in July 2016 with Tinyhouse University and Van Bo Le-Mentzel in Berlin. Getting the chance to meet Van Bo encouraged me to try living with the essentials. This is why I decided to start designing a minimalistic tiny house which is inspired by the beauty of emptiness: aVOID.

I am participating as an official member at the Bauhaus Campus Exhibition starting until 8th March 2018, an experimental tiny house village inside the prestigious garden of Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum of Design in Berlin. Being the only italian architect designing an house on the Campus gave me the responsibility and the honor to represents, in my tiny way, my Country of origin. Putting together the best Companies of my Region “Le Marche” I created and gave birth to aVOID. Starting from April 2018 I will travel back to Italy where I will open the doors of my house to all the visitors which want to know more about “tiny living”. My “tiny on Tour” will stop at Münich, Ulm, Mendrisio, Milan, Rome, Bologna, Turin, Padua to come back at the starting point: Pesaro, my hometown. During my journey I will invite people to test my house and to discuss about new ways to make our city lifestyle more sustainable.

 The “tiny house” theme is characterized by a great appeal to the young public and all the people interested in contemporary social matters. That is a real Movement which was born around the 70s in the United States and now, also thanks to the Tinyhouse University, rapidly spreading in Europe too. The Tiny House Movement is based on principles like adventure, traveling and rooting out from the compromised society that we are facing in our cities.

Starting with its first public presentation at the Fuorisalone 2017 in Milan, the aVOID project has had great reception in the press and in media around the world. The name has appeared in more than 250 publications including newspapers and videos. aVOID is estimated to have reached an audience of at least 50 million users. Below are some links to more significant materials:
