Design for Repair

Design instead of mass-produced merchandise; do-it-yourself instead of buying off-the-rack. Artists show how to breathe new life into old stuff. Inventors tread new paths to make our ecological footprint as small as possible.

This year, the Mobile Ö1 Atelier on Linz’s Main Square (Hauptplatz) presents the Universal World House. It utilizes a new construction material based on the principle bees use to build their hives: strips of paper soaked in resin are compressed into a honeycomb form and then bonded together into panels. The quantity of material required to build a small house corresponds to the amount of cellulose yielded by a single tree. A house can be erected without a crane in one day and is totally weatherproof. The Mobile Ö1 Atelier is also the starting point of Electrical Walks Linz.
