ARCHITECTURE & ASYLUM

A proposal to a temporary installation at a music festival


AN ENTRY TO THE ANNUAL COMPETITION 'BUILD WHAT HERE' FOR ROSKILDE FESTIVAL 2012. IN COLLABORATION WITH PETER RAVNBORG

MARCH 2012

This project was not made as a school assignment but was instead made for the annual competition Build What Here, in which the winning proposal was to be built at Roskilde Festival 2012. Our proposal made it to the top three out of 89 submitted proposals.

The task was to design a temporary installation that brings asylum seeking into focus.

Our proposal addresses this issue quite literally and manifests itself as a curving path through the festival site. The layout is determined by the nearby paths of arrival, camping areas and food stands. The path is to illustrate the dead ends, impossibilities and ups and downs asylum seekers face in their way to asylum.

The project was awarded second prize at the competition. In the summer of 2012 it was exhibited at the Danish Architecture Center (DAC).
