Building heat and hygiene

Hot Love Nest and the Favela Sauna

3 Mar 2013

This weekend we started constructing an oven for warmth and a shower for cleanliness. Mediamatic Fabriek is still pretty darn cold, and the Sauna and Hot Love Nest will make all the difference. Before we can relax, we need to do a bit of work though. Join us and learn a bit about plumbing and construction. RSVP on this page.


Derk is happy with the beginning of building his Hot love nest at Freezing Favela - At Mediamatic Fabriek he is building a 2–person guest room that will be heated by the composting process in the base of the love nest. Also it will provide warmth to the fermentation tanks of the White trash Liquor Factory next door. Aleksandra Kalashnikova

Participating is fun because you'll learn loads of new stuff. And because we like seeing you around we'll make you an honorary Mediamatic member for 4 weeks. This means free entrance to the Fabriek and massive discounts on our events.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela is a small city in and around 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 tostis 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.
