PopUp Dorms, located in the city of Vienna in Austria, is a replicable and relocatable building concept consisting of prefabricated boxes.
This building responds to a long-term approach in its passivity, capability of being transported and economic cost control. It was built very quickly and can be reproduced on a large scale thanks to off-site construction.
These "boxes" can be used independently; they have their own monitored ventilation and sealing system. To take this sustainable approach a step further, renewable energy sources have been integrated (heat pumps, photovoltaics, etc.).
Interview with Thomas Lebinger, Deputy Head of OeAD Student Housing at Batimat (international fair).
