Ecobrick Open Spaces are sets of hundreds of modules that can be deployed at conferences, festivals, and gatherings to provide an immersive, interactive experience of regenerative principles.
Ecobrick Open Spaces are an application for communities with thousands of high quality completed ecobricks. Once combined into sets of hexagonal and triangular milstein modules, as well as Dieleman LEGO modules, sets can be stored together then deployed as needed. Open Space sets are big hits at eco conferences and festivals as a way to provide a hands on experience of ecobricks and cradle-to-cradle design.
JPSM Kota Jogja, a community group in Yogyakarta Indonesia has a set of over 100 modules that they store and rent out to local governments and organizations on demand. Their team of GEA Trainers assist in the setup and hosting of the spaces in order to explain ecobricking and module concepts to visitors.
In Jombang, Indonesia, Sangar Hijau Indonesia has over 50 modules that they rent out around their city – often for festivals or eco-events.
Open Spaces enable children and adults to play together co-creatively. The hands-on funds simultaneously provides an experience regenerative concepts such as transcate, collaboration powered, circular design, leading by example, etc.
Open Space’s invite visitors to be participants and cocreators of their space. Leveraging the versatility, durability and size of ecobrick modules visitors collaborate with each other to build what they need or imagine.
The Open Space empowers the visitor to become participant. Play and interaction with fellows becomes compulsory as participants choose and create their own experience.
For more on the concept, you can read the blog post of inventor and artist Russell Maier.
OpenSpaces immerse visitors in regenerative principles. Banners like this one can be placed around the space to invite participation and explain concepts.
Ecobricking is a what we call a regenerative technology. Rather than "sustaining" the status quo, we're careful that everything we do re-greens rather than greys.
Ecobricks keep plastic & C02 out of the biosphere. Ecobricks raise ecological consciousness. And more!
“It struck me that nothing would redeem ‘plastic waste’ more than to put it to good use into our cultures most hallowed spaces – a mall, an airport, a main street, a cafe. But unlike a cafe, why not enable visitors to create their own space? Ecobricks could then enable not just a place for folks to sit, lounge and chat but to be inspired and empowered.“
