The structure of the different information points is formed by metallic pylons, variously tilted to imitate the accidental arrangement of stalks on which silkworms hang. The monolithic cover is anchored to them by metallic stays; this draws inspiration from silkworms and is made by weaving wires.
This weaving will give rise to a unique element, extremely light and resistant, able to guarantee a high level of light penetration. Waterproofing will instead be guaranteed by a thin layer of transparent resin and/or cement, where the weaving will be drowned.
The light pavilions could also be completed, especially in colder areas, with a light curtain of vertical delimitation, this also transparent, made of glass and/or polycarbonate panels.
