BOXPARK COPENHAGEN is an interdisciplinary installation project between students from Performance Design, Roskilde University and students from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation. The project focuses on the lack of students housing through a public container installation that appeals to innovative and creative housing solutions.
Through an interdisciplinary cooperation BOXPARK COPENHAGEN gained attention on the missing student housing. With public installations on Carlsberg and Vor Frue Plads BOXPARK COPENHAGEN showed how containers could be rebuilt to temporary student apartments.
The project formed the basis for an exchange of experience between the involved students, who gained insight into each other’s professional work. Through the creative process they opened up for a joint communication, networking and future collaboration opportunities as well.
The students explain about the project
“We want our installation to inspire new thinking of possible solutions to the student housing situation. We hope that our installation will serve as an inspiring frame for students and politicians to meet in a dialogue about the issue.
The architecture- and design students will clarify their wishes in designing a temporary student city. The partners from the creative schools play an important role the creative aspect of our installation.”
