FabCity: 24 Interventions for a campus


The campus of the future: what does it look like and how can one contribute to its creation?

The FabCity concept was born in 2014 when the then-mayor of Barcelona challenged other cities to work towards becoming completely self-sustaining ones in 2054. He gave them 40 years to change to the cities that can produce everything they consume. This started a movement in which currently 28 cities participate, experimenting and working together to bring manufacturing back to their terrains, based on the Data-in Data-out urban model.


At this year’s Fabcity; 24 interventions for a campus lab at Border Sessions, we want to focus on the possibilities a student campus provides to contribute towards the same goal. We want to look at all kinds of possible interventions, from the adaptation of the building itself using modular building techniques to the actions of the people who are living and studying at the campus. What could be possible at the place where the people who are going to make this city self-sustaining are being educated right now?

Help to find out by participating at this years FabCity: 24 interventions for a campus Lab at Border Sessions.

Research questions:

1. How can a campus contribute towards a completely self-sustaining city?

2. How can modular building techniques be used to improve a campus?

3. What kind of interaction suited for a campus stimulates such a change?


A campus is where the next generation innovators get their education, but it can be more than a building that facilitates education; it can be a part of innovation.
