David Kraler, Christoph Lachberger

To build a health facility from local materials together with the population of Mondikolok David Kraler and Christoph Lachberger travelled to South Sudan when they still were architecture students. Over a period of three years, they became more and more familiar with the region and its inhabitants and discovered unimagined potentials for a contemporary, regionally rooted architecture - especially in the traditional building culture. The deliberate linking of the university knowledge acquired with the university knowledge with regional know-how resulted in a future-oriented building, as well as a knowledge transfer from which both sides were able to profit. At the TEDxOTHRegensburg event, David and Christoph will tell about their approach, their architectural understanding and the search for local potentials in an unusual environment. They demonstrate how linking tradition and progress can lead to innovative solutions.

Shortly after the first ever publication of the #freeinterrail idea in June 2015 it drew the attention of several European newspapers and institutions and just two months later they were allowed to present the idea to the vice president of the EU comission, Kristalina Georgieva.
