Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela was a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks, and other makers had claimed part of this space as their own. In the Favela you could make tosti's from scratch, bricks from old newspapers, furniture from cardboard, and prepare food with ingredients from the aquaponics farm. Favela-citizens gave workshops and organized events and meals.
