Stockholm-based Ulf Mejergren Architects designed a beautiful mini-city made from sticks which would be built by 100 kids during a scout camp workshop in New Hampshire. The city would be made up of several mini-skyscrapers connected by blocks, different seating elements and stairs used by visitors to navigate the complex. It was shortlisted as a finalist in the Beam Camp Competition, which organized the workshop.
Each pair of kids will build one skyscraper according to the dimensions given by the architects. They will use bundles of reed and tools for creating figures of paper maché to cover the outside of the buildings. The basic form of each structure won’t be visible, leaving only the reed on the exterior, which will be attached in place with plastic straps.
