His most recent project called “Nimble Building Days” aimed to improve the situation of refugees in a spare Red Cross home by working together on a more practical infrastructure and a more beautiful atmosphere. The event took place in July 2016 at Kurierhaus Lindengasse and was a decent success. Other Red Cross homes already expressed interest in a sequel of the event.
