Instead of staying in the cozyness of the university working spaces, students are initiated to participatory processes with the citizens’association ‘Savamala’ to design and built installations on public space. The opinion of the future users played a central role in the modification of the first project. Today, the students are building five different designed objects that will find their place on the river banks of the Sava : that is the spirit of the ‘Urban Cooks’. Project’s details will be presented during the Festival, at the Mikser House between the 5th an the 7th of june. The project is being developped in collaboration with the Institute for Sociological, Political and Juridical Research from Skopje (Macedonia) and Basurama (Madrid). Young architects are involved in the project, but the inhabitants as well.
