A semester long extensive research into various contemporary tendencies, their cause, current state, and possible further progression, including air pollution, littering, deforestation, space debris, depression and the rising seawater levels was conducted by a team of twelve students led by two teachers. These phenomena were not taken as scenarios to be prevented through run-of-the-mill sustainability strategies, instead they were seen as realities that can only be used as opportunities to explore architectural concepts.
Trash became an element that architecture could use as building material, deforestation became not a scenario that was plausible, but needed or even wanted through the beauty of the visions that were developed. The use of unconventional building material meant a disturbance in the modernist context of Dessau; the ground for the Bauhaus movement.
