Artist:Stefan Eberstadt,Muinch Structural Engineering:Thomas Beck, Munich Steel Construction:Alfred Mayrhofer Total Surface: 9m2 Construction Cost: approx € 25.000 Perched between art and architecture, form and function, private and public property, the Rucksack House is a hovering illuminated space that looks like a cross between temporary scaffolding and minimal sculpture. Its design is the result of fundamental artistic questions: How can sculpture function outside the context of art? What claim does the sculpture has today? Where does sculpture apply in today’s world?
Stefan Eberstadt: Why should a building end where its walls normally end? How could it be expanded? The claustrophobic living conditions I experienced in mega cities like London or New york when living in small apartments with sometimes only one window towards the outside world have initiated the idea. I imagine the space in front of this window becoming real and accessible. Just stick some space on!
The concept of the Rucksack House has a dark reddish-brown color which comes from the material from which it is made – exterior grade polywood with an absorbent resin surface. It evokes solidity and provides a contrast to the façade from which the house hangs. The choice of material is inexpensive, accessible and economical.
