Your Home is a Castle

This project dealt with the effects of overregulation in city planning and how it led to the disappearance of informal architecture in the Netherlands. It took the form of an unannounced performance with a self-made houseboat within a newly build neighborhood which lasted four days in total. The project was a response to the closure of one of the last so-called ‘free harbors’ in the city of Groningen, where people designed and built their own houseboats until new regulations declared made it impossible.
