Brief: The challenge of the competition is to design a lodging center by repurposing steel grain bins in an innovative way.

Steel grain bins of diameter 21 feet are part of this challenge. The participants are required to use a minimum of 6 such bins (no more than 12 bins) to create a space that can be used by the members of a farming community to lodge their trainees, visiting the farm for training. The lodges can be rented for 2-3 weeks.

The aim of the challenge is to understand how equipment of the past can be repurposed to meet the needs of the present. The recycling of the steel grain bins must be done conscientiously taking into consideration its various limitations.

The lodging center is designed to accommodate agriculture enthusiasts and trainees who will visit the city farms, to gain knowledge about agriculture processes and trade. Privacy and interaction must be guided in the layout as per the nature of the activity. The sociocultural, economic, and environmental settings of context are to be considered in the design.

Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
