Founding and Management buildCollective NPO for Architecture and Development, 2010 – 2018
The Non Profit Organisation for Architecture and Development buildCollective established in 2010 with founding members and architects Elias Rubin and Marlene Wagner, working in developing
environments since 2006.
Collaboration with universities, non governmental organizations, public institutions, companies, schools, sponsors, artists, users and local communities define process and framework for each project. Focus is put on conscious handling of location and setting, resources, production of knowledge and the exchange between participants through the collective activity.
Projects reach from classrooms, workshops and other communal buildings to infrastructure like playgrounds, toilets, food-gardens, bridge, community water-tap, to tactical placemaking, artistic public space projects, community mappings and development frameworks.
