Eighteen architecture students from the Technical University of Kaiserslautern worked with twenty-five refugees for three months in building this wooden pavilion in a camp located in the old Spinelli barracks that the United States had in Mannheim, some 60 kilometers from Kaiserslautern. Under the supervision of the professors Stefan Krötsch, Andreas Kretzer, and Jürgen Graf, the ‘build together – learn together’ project involved the drawing up of various proposals and the selection of the one by Sandra Gressung, Sascha Ritschel, and Tobias Vogel. The design combines covered and open-air spaces between walls of cross laminated timber and lattices that give structural support.
