Kapr Project proposes a temporary structure that can be both seen as an artwork by itself and a platform for a series of workshops and happenings. Our goal is to increase the chances of social mixing between the populations of the area and incoming visitors who have heard of the event previously.

The structure of the project takes the form of shelters made of wood typical of nomadic habitat in some places in Iran. The name Kapr is a Kurdish term that is given to shelters designed to invite passengers to share tea and fruits during the summer. They have a seasonal rhythm, organized by the cyclic succession of stays on different sites. Each year, a settlement is left until the next reinstalment on the following year.
