Installed at the site of Museumplein, the work sprawls across the green open space; free and accessible, the 3D printed concrete forms create a landscape of rooms. A comment on the contemporary housing situation, the collective explore, “issues connected with the global housing crisis, mass production and the relationship between public and private.”
They also created a large scale text work, collaborating with graphic designer Fabian Harb for the font and fragments of poems selected by curator Harry Burke, including excerpts by Joan Larkin, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Carry van Bruggen, Sophie Collins and more. In addition, the collective invited Martha Rosler to exhibit her animated billboard ‘Housing Is a Human Right’ (1989).
åyr, founded in 2014, is made up of four architects who tackle “ownership, privacy and sharing within the domestic space.”**
