Through the creation of a functional settlement in which preconceived programs (community space, dwellings, market, school, barn etc.) are re-envisioned, this project explores the idea of what defines a village and how constraints such as time, material, and neighbours can be negotiated.
My team’s project, led by Mjölk Architekti, looks at the infrastructure of a village, something which is often unnoticed. Our goal was to bring fun to such functional structures. The first tower, equiped with sprinkling water and a raised tub, is responsible for the water supplies. The second is for communication, where bright loudspeakers ensure that information spreads far.
This project was part of Hello Wood Project Village 2015
