The realization from the initial idea to the built table construction happened in quite a short amount of time

That has been so fascinating about the whole process. This is mainly due to the fact that the communication between the participating actors, the collaborating offices, Hands of Honour, the builder and the people on site worked out very well and the distribution of the roles was clear. It shows that once people are really into an idea and engaged to make it happen, reality can be transformed. The idea of the table house is not new (we can think for example about John Habraken’s concepts), but remained rather discourse. The realization of the first proto-type for the table house shows that architecture has more impact as soon as the right actors are assembled.
