The Irk Collective is a collaborative project aiming at creating a congregation of buildings in the forest to answer the needs of the local community. A deep exploration of the site and interviews with workers and residents revealed the neglected state of the Irk Valley and the loss of a sense of belonging. To reinstate this community bound, the project defines a committee composed of local actors that will discuss, decide, and design their new collective story. The scheme develops throughout time and provides five individual buildings: A forum - collaborative offices where the committee operates; the Canteen - a place of catering and evasion for employees of the local businesses; the Gymnasium responding the lack of leisure infrastructure; a library to bring a cultural presence to the valley and an auditorium and food pavilion to open up the Irk and attract the dynamic population of the surrounding quarters.
