Slum Sessions #9

What's the plan?

29 Jan 2013

We are building a favela inside Mediamatic Fabriek. But what will our city look like? How can we generate heat, how do we feed people, and how will we clean up our shit? A group of designers and doers has been meeting to find the answers. On Tuesday these future citizens presented their building plans. For instance: a Tosti Factory (including a pig and a cow), and a distillery that makes use of organic trash.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela is a small city within Mediamatic Fabriek. Builders, cooks and other makers 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.
