Invited by Färgfabriken to contribute in the exhibition Experiment Stockholm. ”Urban Weaving” represents the idea of a city built by many instead of only a few, using knowledge and ideas from many different people. The pavilion was developed in a participatory process, starting with an open wood structure with patches of weaved straw crafted by Tanzanian Maasai women. During the exhibition, the pavilion was altered in a series of workshops with students from Nyckelviksskolan and Tensta Arkitekturskola, where they worked on the theme of weaving and cultural exchange. More layers were added, creating an intricate story of weaved patterns in an open ended work process. The final piece is an example of participatory design that manifests the importance of detailing, shared knowledge and the human scale in the development of our cities.
