Corrugated: the facilitator

img_5764

Take:

  • Eager students of architecture at the University of Detmold,
  • very, indeed very bored refugees waiting for German burocracy to decide on their status,
  • a professor of architecture with access to an empty house,
  • a corrugated board producer supplying lots of corrugated board for free.

Then:

  • Ask students and refugees to come together to develop the concept for common space,
  • refugees, students and neighbours simulate everything in corrugated board like book shelves, machines or fitness devices.

Result:

Many happy people and lasting friendships, meeting place for films, meals and events, a pilot project for integration in small villages – transferable to other places.
