Munich is not lost yet, even though the real estate prices rise ever higher. Silence and shrugging off the problem is not an option, because a future city that accommodates all begins now!
Our main substructure will be two scrap containers, a symbol for transition and makeshift. We want progress! Travellers, refugees, utopists – The ship is now our temporary dwelling. We bring with us our thoughts, visions and dreams.
The problems of the present are never a dead-end. To find our way, we must question the very foundations we stand on. We must venture forth to unknown places because we are sure our well known world will look a little different when watching from aboard the Belafou.
Cast off! Untie your imagination!
