Mother Bubble proposes the employment of pneumatically supported structures (air-pressure-inflated membranes) which are incredibly cheap to fabricate, can be moved from site to site, and can be blown up and taken down in a matter of minutes. Moving beyond their stigmatic associations with 60s and 70s radical architecture movements, this proposal imagines a use for modest inflatable spaces that can provide temporary, nomadic and flexible locations for non-residential activity as a means to make visual the groups that are socially and politically active in the area of Tensta, Sweden. Circulating on a digital lending platform, the Mother Bubble will establish a self-sustaining economic community, or econo-community.

This project was made in collaboration with Jesse Seegers, the founder of OSP: Organization for Spatial Practice
