Mood for Wood are international workshops aimed for students of design degrees interested in actual project realisation. So far 9 international editions of the project have taken place, with participation of the joint number of over 400 students from Poland, Germany, Latvia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. During the workshops, students, with the help of recognised architects and designers from all over world and experienced carpenters, will independently create urban furniture for selected locations and users.
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, artist Iza Rutkowska, Begona de Abajo Castrillo (RAW/De Abajo Garcia) or Hiroshi Kato.
