Jungle Belfry

Project Management

In October 2016, the master programme Studio for Immediate Space from Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam, organised a workshop in The Jungle of Calais in France, Europe’s biggest refugee camp. The workshop consisted of a series of spontaneous artistic and architectonic interventions aiming at offering some support to the population of the The Jungle, just prior to the imminent dismantling of the camp.

 On the sand hill of the camp, the group together with the inhabitants of the camp built the Jungle Belfry. It rapidly became the symbol of the Jungle around which people gathered and interacted, thus turning into a sort of plaza. It functionally also served as an outpost, from which people could detect any incoming aggression.
