This film was shot during the Salone in Milan last April at the Public Design Festival. In a week we built a small house from waste material we found in the city, or were given by people in the neighborhood.

When finished, the house was a meeting point to drink coffee and socialize. Our daily newspaper, the FOUNDaily, was handed out and is also posted on our blog:

FOUNDation projects is a collaboration of Rikkert Paauw and Jet van Zwieten. An on-site spontaneous approach to design in the public space.

On October 1st 2010 the FOUNDation project is coming to Vienna to do the same project. We were invited by the kind people of the Vienna Design Week.
