Wroclaw Summerschool 2019 - the water house

Water and cardboard are not really friends, but with the right choice of materials and building techniques it will be possible to build houses out of cardboard - most important is to not soak the entire structure in a resin or other non separable treatment in order to garanty the recycling after its end of use.

The team has chosen a couple of different concepts in order to test these within one house. Most likely they picked dense cardboard products that last very long under water and used overlapping principles based on roof shingles.

We hope the fire brigade in Darmstadt will mimic a classic rain and will not blast away the house horizontally ...we are curious about the performance !
