Mood for Wood are international workshops aimed for students of design degrees interested in actual project realisation. So far 4 editions of the project have taken place, with participation of the joint number of 210 students from Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. During the workshops, students, with the help of recognised architects and designers from all over Europe and experienced carpenters, will independently create urban furniture for selected locations in Poznań.
Design teams will work on a specific location, meet with users of the space and get to know their needs in order tackle issues related to the particular place. The workshops are accompanied by additional events: debates, architecture walks, film screenings, and lectures. So far, architects and designers from all over Europe who shared their experience with the participants include Snohetta, TOPOTEK 1, Hello Wood, Zdenek Franek or the artist Iza Rutkowska.
This year’s edition has been made possible thanks to the financial support from the Visegrad Fund, the City of Poznań and Marshal Office of the Wielkopolska region in Poznań, as well as the close cooperation with project’s partners: School of Form from Poznań, Nomad Studio from Hungary, 2021 architekti from Slovakia and the Architecture Department of Brno University of Technology from Czech Republic.
