Crowd Clad Chalet
10:00  16:00

The Crowd Clad Chalet is a hands-on, participative building process. Together with Festival visitors we will craft and cast biodegradable shingles to clad the open timber structure of the Chalet. Using only natural materials such as seeds and coconut fat, these building components are edible by wild birds in search for food in winter and raise the question how the built environment might be a more welcoming place for other species than our own. After the event, the shingles can be brought home by the participants and hung in their gardens and balconies.
