A scale model and full-size mock-up of a playhouse I’m making for Stockholm Furniture Fair in February 2014. It’s made from birch plywood and water hyacinth rope, and is a part of a project of making furniture from rope of unwanted materials – waste or weeds. Water hyacinth is an aquatic weed causing various environmental problems throughout the world; an organization called Zingira in Kenya is making efforts in turning it into useful material.

I spent several days with people from Dragodid at abandoned seasonal village Petrebišća on Učka mountain. For three years they have been organizing dry stone workshops at Petrebišća with volunteering architecture, landscape architecture and ethnology students who are along with local builders and Dragodid members slowly rebuilding the whole village. This year the goal was rebuilding the thatched roof on a stone shelter.
