Do It Together_ Modular system made of cardboard and Velcro for material and immaterial community self-construction processes.

A project by Husos Platform

“Do It Together” is a modular, self-assembly masonry system made of cardboard and Velcro that was designed by Husos. The aim is to have a space that can be determined and gradually built by the community of artists participating in the artistic project “Here Together Now“ and other residence programs during 2013 in nave 16.1 in Matadero-Madrid. It revives the tradition of using paper and cardboard in architecture by proposing a system of large boxes stuck together with Velcro, a technique that is reversible, and at the same time highly stable. This system is designed to provide flexibility and enable self-construction of a space, giving each individual and the community as a whole the opportunity to build their own working place and choose how they want to interact with one another.
