The institute of platemaking needs your help!

The Institute of Placemaking is about creating new places from abandoned spaces through knowledge exchange and collective actions in the city. For Eme3 we proposed to re-think the city as a resource, whose products, people and places are all part of a larger cycle of production.

We begin with a simple, transformable architecture constructed from recovered materials (doors, windows, cabinets etc) that can be taken apart to make workshops with. An office-cabin and a table are the simple spatial elements around which workshops, dinners, film screenings, exhibitions and collective gatherings happen.

The Institute of Placemaking is going to happen in Barcelona during eme3 architectural festival in an abandoned urban spot.

Help us make it happen via Kickstarter! Eternal gratitude, postcards and photos in exchange!
