Families, Friends and Fans:
We are really moved!
But we don’t want to be called raumlabor anymore
if we can’t find a way to realise our dreams anyways!
Honestly, we don´t know how to.
But we have 3 more weeks to find out!

your raumlabor-LOTVILLE team
The SKYWALK is the visual manifestation of LOTVILLEs network of knowledge, the outlook into a future where learning, working and making a living reassemble to a new common ground.
With your help we will be able to realise it!
“Lotville – Landscape of Desire” is a visionary perspective on Europe’s countryside in relation to urbanity, it’s brain is the Lotville-SKYWALK!
For “Lotville” raumlabor is asking a simple question: What if the beautiful and touristic Vallée du Lot becomes a dream target for migrants around the world?
We have gathered a transdisciplinary team of experts to develop strategies for inhabitants, nature and the tourist industry to think positive into a future of urbanization. We are searching the history of urban planning for solutions to the challenges of our society today. We collected the stories of people, who have moved to the valley, as a blueprint for a future development.
Our mission is to create a new vision of the city of tomorrow. Yesterdays visions have followed us in our work and we are grateful for that. We think it´s time for an update! The scenic Vallée du Lot in the very middle of Europe is our testing ground. Lotville will be a place where people, who try to get into Europe and/or travel through Europe to find a new home, will find the place to spent their lives.
For this city we think it needs a brain: the University of Lotville. A University of experimentation that asks questions, rather than answering them.
The collected money will be used to by materials to realize the first piece of Lotville: The Lotville-SKYWALK
A poetic wooden construction – 50 meters long, 5 meters high with a beautiful view on both sides. A connection between ideas, forms and the surrounding landscape! The founding element for our visionary city of the future!
