Elzenhof GC | Ixelles, Bruxelles (be) | 2016

For years the entrance lobby of ELZENHOF has been a windy and shadowy place: an abandoned looking long hallway. From the utopia that the different groups and activities – so the people themselves – could somehow inhabit this place, a cabane-kind of structure was set into place providing niches and differentiated zones for a wide range of different purposes. Made out of cheap wood and recuperated material, with low-tech “anybody-couldhave-made-it” technology, it reminds people that in this highly mechanized world we can still shape our own habitat.
