A bicycle-powered festival open mic stage built from recycled materials by a volunteer team.
Tangentfield's fourth Roots Architecture Workshop (RAW4) provided a place at WOMAD (World Of Music And Dance) for a group of architecture-related charities to create four different places for festival-goers.
Architecture For Humanity UK were asked to provide an open mic stage that would be the first performance space encountered by the public as they approached the main site from their campgrounds. The stage formed an old fashioned television set, with audience seated on a giant coffee table and pair of armchairs.
Constructed over the course of a few days by a volunteer team entirely from a variety of previously unseen recycled materials, the project as an exercise in on-the-spot design and collaboration.
