From shed to spatial object

The student exercise ‘Vom Gartenhaus zum Räumling’ aims to validate the potential of the urban mine. Using a garden shed near Karlsruhe as material depot, we carefully deconstructed the house and diligently documented each element. As a group, the students then designed a spatial installation utilizing only the harvested elements and no glue or permanent fixtures. After all, also this installation had to be designed for disassembly, providing building materials for yet another structure.
