Hello Wood - International Summer School and Festival for Architecture
About Hello Wood:
Hello Wood provides a unique experience in the craft of building, inventing, testing and an intimate understanding of the material itself.
We believe that a socially responsive attitude and the utilization of the material constraints in an innovative way, is crucial for sustainable design. Hello Wood has an ability to provide a productive reciprocity between a concept, the design and its realization. Our goal is to promote the construction process as a platform for discussion, innovation and exchanging knowledge. Hello Wood is a profoundly democratic opportunity to connect different generations, designers and artist with various cultural, academic and professional backgrounds.
About Project Village:
PROJECT VILLAGE IS PROPAGANDA FOR REVERSED URBANISATION.
By leaving the city and by occupying a piece of the countryside for a week- long workshop we will build a community-settlement. We ask professionals and students from around the world to bring their experience, their pre-conceived and revolutionary ideas of each part of the village and to negotiate these against time and material constraints, the neighbor’s lot, and –most importantly– the common purpose.
We all have our culturally influenced idea of what a village is. By challenging the informal and rural fantasy of the village, Project Village becomes an instant functional settlement.
