Enter the ScrapShack

The idea for the installation ”The Big Crunch” designed by Raumlabor and part of a summer architectural happening in Darmstadt, Germany, was to assemble a swarm of common scrap that had been cast away at a nearby dump. Items of civilization such as furniture, refrigerators, wooden items, scrap, timber, windows etc were all used to create a sort of mega-sized moving ”scrap-magnet”. The cool thing was that the scrapshell was built around a inner structure, allowing people to experience this ”scrapshack” from the inside…The whole thing is super cool if you´d ask me – what I wouldn´t give for a night at the ScrapHack mansion! Too bad the installation was only temporary…

“In physical cosmology, the Big Crunch is one possible scenario for the ultimate fate of the universe, in which the metric expansion of space eventually reverses and the universe recollapses, ultimately ending as a black hole singularity.”
