Recycled Gecekondu Shelter at Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport Teaches Kids About Green Design

The temporary shelters and outdoors furniture are located near the community garden at Tempelhof Airport. The aim of the space is to provide a place for kids and youngsters to learn all sort of crafts using recycled materials like wood, tires, shipping pallets and banners. The space is was made from donated scrap materials from creative scrap yard Kunst-Stoffe  and some remainins from last year’s Bread & Butter , held at the nearby airport’s main building.
Rough and ready, the recycled structures take random, sometimes irregular shapes, but the message is clear: “This is not a dumping place for your trash.” The kids from Youth Art Neukölln are still busy building new shelters, together with artists, social workers, architects and local residents.
