Designers, builders and livers have been happily discussing the future of the Freezing Favela. During Slum Sessions #3 we shared our proposals to fulfill the favela needs.

At this session, we listened to exciting proposals for the favela such as plans for an indoor igloo, plaster made from cow dung and diverse products created from local trash. It was a very interactive session where participants were involved in questioning possibilities and providing solutions.

We also started imagining possible future collaborations. Can a Cow Poo Factory benefit from our Mushroom Farm? Will there be a shared workshop space for organic design? For now, we ask those interested in contributing to the Freezing Favela project to share their proposals on the Mediamatic website. Let people know what kind of help you need and respond to proposals you would like to help make happen.

At Slum Sessions #4 we will play to explore how the distribution of space and resources may unfold. Please RSVP to let us know you’ll be joining.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela is a small city within Mediamatic Fabriek. Builders, cooks and other makes have been given the possibility to claim a part of the big industrial hall as their own. They work on their projects autonomously, but like in any other community, materials, space and functions have to be shared. Favela citizens are making tosti's from scratch, paper from cow shit, furniture from cardboard, and food from our very own aquaponics farm. And everyone is welcome to contribute. Build this city with us.
