Hello Wood Festival - Builder Summit
Thursday, Jul 6, 20239 AM — Saturday, Jul 15, 20236 PMCEST
Hello Wood’s builder festival returns on 6-15 July with Karim Rashid and Arthur Mamou-Mani and is now open to applications for students and aspiring team leaders from around the world.
After a three-year hiatus, the extraordinary summer school is back. The Builder Summit, Hello Wood’s greatest-ever event, is organised with the support of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture and will be held in a post-apocalyptic basalt quarry in Hungary from July 6 to 15. The summer school will host more than 200 participants and later expects more than 1000 visitors at the closing music festival. The organisers are also happy to announce that it will be joined by international design superstars Karim Rashid, and Arthur Mamou-Mani who is well-known for his iconic structures designed for several Burning Man events.
The Hello Wood-Builder Summit will be a unique community experience, inviting people to master the ‘thinking through making’ philosophy, as well as create and socialize together.
This year's event will examine the connections between intervention and naturalness, demolition and construction, and absence and replenishment, in order to reflect on the ecological circumstances of the region and call attention to the relationship between human-environment-future.
From March students and future team leaders are welcome to apply to the Hello Wood Builder Summit. Prospective team leaders are encouraged to propose provocative ideas that address contemporary issues while also reflecting on the festival's primary topics. Wooden installations, land art initiatives, as well as virtual and augmented reality projects are all welcome. The team leader application deadline is April 9. Further details on how to apply are available in theOpen Call.
At the same time, students of architecture, landscape architecture, design or art can apply by filling out the registration form and submitting their personal portfolio and a motivational letter. Student participants should also purchase tickets which will cover accommodation, 3 meals a day, the summer school’s programme, access to lectures, and a Full Festival Pass. Early Bird Tickets are available for students until March 31, and it is recommended to apply early to secure a spot!
Considering the number of participants and the scale of the project installations, not to mention the closing arts and music festival, the organisers guarantee that this year’s summer school and festival will be the biggest and most exciting one in the history of Hello Wood. Future-oriented architecture, design, and art students; opinion leaders; and teachers from all around the world will gather to create something extraordinary during their 10 days together.
