ULTREIA, THE NOMAD FACTORY.


Increasingly mass production and globalisation are leading to a drastic geographical localization of factories and industrial facilities. Ultreia is a project where El Camino, an ancient pilgrim route in Spain, is transformed into a 700km production line. The recent commercialization of the route is challenged by on-site manufacture of alternative objects and performances, through a portable factory that is able to relocate itself everyday, taking advantage of the specific locations, industries and people encountered on the route. A rotational moulding machine powered by the movement of the bike itself, a tent and a solar panel allowed the designer to become completely self-sustainable on the road and accomplish a 2 weeks production journey.
