Spontaneous multicultural villages will spring up like mushrooms.

In the big cities there is place to build just speculation. People who need a space to be will grab the free areas and build a spontaneous city.

The waste materials are there for free, the metropolis' resources are infinite.

Open your eyes: the world is changing.

What happens in city like Bombay, or Nairobi, or other cities in Africa, Asia or South America concerns also you and the entire world, Europe included.

Ours is the story of how a little house generated a unexpected village in the heart of Berlin, inhabited by people from all around the world and of how, in the end, the building speculation brought to its destruction.

Cuvry-Brache is located in Kreuzberg, Berlin. The occupied illegal village, born in the 2013, was evicted on the 18th September 2014.
Thanks to the help of our friends, we could save our house as art piece.

In the spring 2015 it was planned to build in the Cuvry's field 250 luxury apartments.

The area nowadays is still a empty wasteland.

Demonstration against the eviction, summer 2014

On the 18th September 2014 because of a big suspect fire the police evicted the area.

On the 22nd September the bulldozers started to destroy everything. Taguchi and Ciccarello managed to get the authorization to disassemble their house and save it as art artefact.
