“Toy-Kit-Architectures” are temporary sculptures built with modular systems. Often, those modules consist of parts from concrete shuttering (h-20 carriers) or mass-produced goods, such as inflatable objects. Those elements are modeled to “temporary sculptures” using lashing strips. The main characteristic of the sculptures is their flexibility, which allows to construct site-specific configurations on-the-fly and to ensure an architectural connection to buildings, areas and objects in public space nearby.
