Reusable Alis Pod

Architect: Zaha Hadid Architects

Location: Venice, Italy

Alis Pod Venice

Addressing new requirements for contemporary meeting areas, Alis is designed to enhance collaboration and cooperation within a space that integrates flexibility and comfort with advanced information technology.

Alis Pod Venice

A mobile space to meet and interact, Alis can be installed in a diversity of settings: indoor and outdoor, offices and commercial spaces, as well as civic and communal settings such as stations and airports. Alis creates an instant meeting room that can be fully customised based on the requirements of its users.

Alis Pod Venice

Combining innovative design technologies with maximum connectivity and precision fabrication, the design is informed by the petals of an orchid which embrace the pod and provide privacy and shelter with optimal visibility.

Alis Pod Venice

Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and constructed by Tecno to the highest standards with exacting digital manufacturing techniques including 3D printing and CAD/CAM tooling.

The modular design enables the pod to be easily be disassembled, transported, repurposed and re-used in different configurations for alternative functions.

Each element of the pod is integral to its circular design cycle that ensures long-life durability and minimal waste with components that can be recycled or upcycled into second life applications.

Alis Pod Venice

From its bespoke panelling system to its floor and ceiling that discreetly conceal most electronic and mechanical installations within a cohesive design inspired by nature, Alis represents the future of collaboration: a place to meet and connect that is highly flexible and identifiable.
