Future Island spring building workshop, hands on the rocks!
Eva, Sylvain and Marjetica are back in Albano to undertake the construction of the heated part of Future Island. Clusters of heated rocks, under-rock heating network and general topography are carefully placed to form a semi natural landscape which together with local water plants and grasses will form the ecosystem of the island.
They are instructing a team of fantastic builders from Akademiska Hus and NCC who deploy some extreme skills with their machines to sculpt the island and enables this construction of a new nature which will show live some of the consequences of a 5 deg. Temperature increase in the atmosphere.
Tomas Persson from Akademiska Hus, Lotta Mossum and Johan Tirén from Statens konstråd - Public Art Agency Sweden are making sure the work is going according to schedule.
