Rotor [to the project]
2017/16 Development as open source project and test run prototype IV at the Eisbach, Munich; A water wheel (Darrieus Rotor) with a vertical axis and 3 fixed blades in a mobile, small hydropower plant is rotating through the flow of a river like a turbine and generates electricity. Flowing water can therefore be used to temporarily or permanently generate electricity.

space ship - installation and exhibition [to the project]
2016 Installation in front of the Pinakothek der Moderne, exhibition at the Matriculation Hall of the Technical University Munich; The object installation shows a seven-meter-long and six-meter high lightweight construction project. It allows a wide range of combinations and construction possibilities, also as a DIY kit for mobile, internationally applicable buildings: the object is buoyant. Thus, the art and architecture installation tackles current topics on low-cost buildings, missing living space and solutions both in Germany and abroad. In cooperation with the low cost lab of the Chair of Building Construction and Material Science, Prof. Florian Musso, Technical University Munich.

Observatorium [to the project]
2016 Csórompuszta, Ungarn; octagonal, 8,5 m high tower object made from square-cut wood. An extremely open structure with minimal use of material provides the visitor with a 360 degree panoramic view of the surrounding landscape.

wind- watertower [to the project]
2016 Michamvi, Sansibar, Tansania; Reconstruction of a water station combined with a 10 m high cooling tower as central village object. The 28 sqm former cistern room has been remodelled into a naturally air-conditioned, shaded, and water providing space by using the traditional technique of cooling towers. The debris has been put into 7 gabiones that form“recycling-bench-installation” in front of the tower tower. The water station is a PPP project (Public Private Partnership) of the GIZ.

paperbox [to the project]
2016 Art Biennale Kunsteiland, Hermitage, Rotterdam, Netherlands; House made of recycled corrugated card board (fruit boxes) as self-supportive light weight construction. The 3,6 m high tower forms an upside down cone without ceiling. Diameter is 2,4 m; 480 commercially available fruit boxes have been used. Realised in cooperation with and pre-running workshop at the TU Darmstadt, Fachgebiet Plastisches Gestalten, Prof. Ariel Auslender.
