Using only recycled paper store bags, marker pens & scissors, the designer led community members to create visions of their dream homes and a miniature neighborhood that counters monotony with individuality. The inside of each bag represents a single central space in a flat. Placed side by side and stacking on top of one another, the store bags weave color and space together, creating a harmonious rhythm in this “flat jungle” which is further enlivened by the custom lighting sequence of the pre programmed LED lights.
