As a result of our research, we came up with the idea of using containers in the Sphinxpark, that serve as living-working modules. We extended the symbol of the container, traditionally standing for globalization, to the next step, transforming it into an object for living. As a result of both meanings in this context, our concept lead to the topic of a modern nomadic lifestyle.
One container has been used as an exhibition space for a presentation about „living and working in the wilderness of a temporary park“ in which we presented our research. The exhibition looks at alternative forms of living, while preserving the qualities of the landscape. The other container is used as a working space, where workshops, think tanks, lectures and meetings took place for the inhabitants of Maastricht. Sphinxpark soon became a meeting point for people of different age and profession, characterizing the place as a living room and space for interaction and cultural exchange.
