The European network ConstructLab is a collaborative building practice that designs and builds collaboratively spaces and contents. This organization comes as a collective to present their hunger for togetherness. The quartet Alexander Römer (D), Joanne Pouzenc (F), Peter Zuiderwijk (NL) and Bert de Backer (B) are the speakers.

The title How Together refers to a publication by the German collective Constructlab on the occasion of the Chicago Architecture Biennale 2019. ConstructLab takes a dynamic approach to uniting architectural concept and construction. Breaking with traditional divisions of labor, the organization engages a team of multitalented designer-builders—as well as sociologists, urban planners, graphic designers, curators, educators, and web developers—who carry the creative process from the drafting table into the field, enabling design to respond to the possibilities and restraints posed by materials, site, environment, and utilization. With emphasis on collaboration, both with one another and with members of the community, ConstructLab’s practitioners take on a variety of projects, permanent and temporary, bringing their creative strategies to bear on solving problems and raising awareness of social, environmental, and practical issues. They favor recycled and upcycled materials, and they are mindful of resources available locally. At the heart of ConstructLab’s work, which includes commissioned projects throughout the world, is a desire to enhance feelings of community and heighten the sense of place.
