Feeling the Energy is the installation which CRA - Carlo Ratti Associati and Italo Rota, in collaboration with KME, have designed for Plenitude in the green landscape of the Orto Botanico di Brera. It interprets the theme of the exhibition INTERNI Design Re-Generation through a project on the multiple forms of energy: a decisive topic for any initiative of re-generation after the difficult years of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Feeling the Energy creates an energy park inside a location of extraordinary charm (to which CRA returns for its third consecutive participation with INTERNI).

Design Re-Generation happens inside an interactive installation where visitors have the chance to discover and experiment, in a playful way, with solar energy, wind energy and evaporative cooling. The re-generation also has to do with safe ways of being together: the entire pathway is made in antibacterial copper, thanks to the contribution of the multinational manufacturer KME. The material will be reutilized after the event in a perspective of circular design.
