WOMAD (“World of music, art and dance”) is a cultural festival started in 1980. The last couple of years the organizers of ‘Roots Architecture’ have involved architects in the program. In 2010 TYIN was asked to guide a small group of volunteers from Great Britain.

The main goal of the workshop was to design and build a stage meant to be used on the last day of the festival. During four hectic days, a stage was built using recycled timber found in the area. Our materials were pallets and ready-made trusses.

The stage was dubbed “Ribbein / Ribbon” – a Norwegian-English pun on the rib-like construction and the curved motion of a ribbon.
