STRAW

Oven & Sweat Hut

Sketch design for a straw bale shed with an oven and sweat hut (or sauna). The drawings were made for a collective workshop on making with straw bales. Apart from serving a social purpose, the heat it produced was to be used by other 'Favela' dwellers to counter the cold of the huge, leaking, unheated space in the Van Gendthallen, Amsterdam.

Thank you to René Dalmeijer who handed his knowledge down to us and Mediamatic who hosted the 'Frozen Favela' workshops. Unbuilt.
