Was a building competition in the Summer of 2012. It was also the main project of the [an]docken team. We wanted to improve the living conditions in two underdeveloped parts of Kassel. So we created a competition to build seven temporary Projects during one week of construction. The results were a variety of ideas from urban gardening, reopening an old factory to produce art or to cover an unused industrial chimney with mirrors. The main goal was to show the potential of this part of the city.
