- 2014/2015 WINTER:CHRISTMAS TREE WITHOUT THE GLITTERIn 2014 we built a Christmas tree together with Design Terminal and the Hungarian Interchurch Aid in one of the most central squares of Budapest. The installation is 11 meters high, 4,5 meters wide and was made of 5000 pieces of firewood that weigh 150 quintals. After last year’s project, when we built a huge Christmas tree made of sledges, this year’s goal was to create a Christmas tree for the Budapest community, which symbolizes the importance of caring about each other. All the firewood used in the installation are given to families in need in January.

- Architecture of Balance: Hello Wood 2014 open call for admissionAPPLICATION DEADLINE FOR PARTICIPANTS:16 MAY 2014Hello Wood is one of the leading international architecture and design camps in Europe: last year more than 100 architects from 12 countries participated in the summer workshop. All work, produced in Hello Wood carries two attributes: it’s mostly of wood and it’s characterized by an interplay of art and social commitment. This year, for the fifth time Hello Wood has the opportunity to create 12 wood installations in its summer workshop in Csorompuszta, a charming village of Balaton uplands, Hungary.Hello Wood is looking for workshop leaders and student coming from the world of architecture, design or other art fields, who feel touched by its current topic: BALANCE. Our aim is to create pieces that can capture the delicate moment of equilibrium by reacting on uncertainty, skepticism or disproportion; notions that can easily be translated to the language of architecture.
For all the details, please read the open calls!
