But what if it is more than that? Architecture helps us perform our lives, even in its symbolic deeds. With Jacob Voorthuis and Students from the Master in Architecture, Urban Design and Engineering (AUDE) at Eindhoven University of Technology.

Todopia is a semi-mobile living / workspace designed by artist Reinier Kranendonk. Through Todopia he makes a plea for independent and self-sufficient existence. The various objects within this living / workspace allow the audience to identify with an autarkic way of life.
