The buzzword for participating Spanish, Polish, German, Austrian and Hungarian architects this year is CLOSER! Last year Hello Wood made installations for small, deprived Hungarian villages to add value to the lives of local communities with the tools of design and architecture. The social architectural interventions made an attempt to help community life. Some installations soothed local tensions, some helped to form a positive local identity. In 2013 the organizers would like to further investigate how architects and designers can take part in community building, how the relationship between people, nature and built environment can make a “step closer” with the tools of design and architecture.

Sky, wind, music, fire, bar, table: some of the things that play a role in the cohesion of communities - say the workshop leaders of Hello Wood this year. Two of them Lukasz Pastuszka and Jakub Majewski from  Moomoo office think that the biggest challenge in our lives is that globalization, the digital world and accelerated life made us forget ‘easy life’. The goal is to find our way back to our senses. With their project, titled Senses - Levels - People, their aim is to create a space that will focus on interaction of people and nature, a place that will make the senses more clear, visible and intense.

About Hello Wood

Hello Wood is a multicultural, multidisciplinary art program. It is most known for its one week long creative camp in the summer, where the well-known and acknowledged professionals and artists share their knowledge and experience with talented young people. The installations created in the camp have two things in common: they are mostly made of wood and social engagement intertwining with art is essential part of it. Hello Wood integrates scientific and artistic areas, builds community and searches talent. It not only brings students and teachers together overreaching country borders but also connects everyday people with the creating designers.
