An “Out of the box” exhibition will take over the Grünewald area of Kirchberg starting 15 July through 30 July.
The event celebrates all things cabana--including modular cabins, which are considered a type of solution for more sustainable construction, falling in line with circular economy principles. This year’s festival focuses on urban interaction, and for this reason many of the huts will be dedicated to sport.
A total 25 temporary cabanas will be set up for the exhibition as well, near the “Klosegrëndchen” park and throughout Grünewald. Guided tours are available through the Service National de la Jeunesse.
Two permanent modular cabins will also be revealed--winners of a competition that took place in the run-up to festival.
One of the winning teams was Origin’s, comprised of five architects, who designed a cabin with steel poles which give the cabin multiple uses: a hammock or athletic net can be set up between poles, for example, meaning a few simple changes can convert the box from a relaxation centre into a sport hut!
The second winner was Peneva Gallyna (under team name Moma), an architect whose “gamebox” unfolds and can be used for chess, a large picnic, even climbing.
