Tales of Žužemberk can be grateful for probably the most amazing working space in this year’s EASA. They are located in the castle tower above Tapaland. Views are stunning and there is a constant refreshing wind keeping the participants on top of their game. The tutors of the workshop are selfproclaimed Estonian nerds, Laura and Roland. They are loved and appreciated by the group and the feeling seems to be mutual. And what it is that they do? They are learning to translate atmosphere and emotions into illustrated stories. Everyone has their individual project but discussions seem to play a big role as well. A good deal of the time is dedicated to thinking and reflecting. There is a lot of self-examination going on here. If you haven’t yet visited the TaleTower, you definitely should. Go enjoy the calm and emotive atmosphere, the view and of course the beautiful illustrations.



A group of three enthusiastic Hungarian tutors, – Roland, Eszter and Zsofia are enjoying their work by the river. The workshop started with a walk around Žužumberk, researching possible sites and brainstorming concepts. The tutors initially planned to build their intervention on the castle wall, but in the end they have located their workshop in the pleasant and chilled atmosphere by the river (probably so they can jump into the water whenever they want). The organisers should be pretty pleased with this workshop, because they have brought their own material – elastic rope, which was funded through a competition in Hungary and also all of the participants can work without any tools. Right now you can see them working on three different sculptures situated on the opposite side of the river – near the waterfalls, under the bridge and one a bit further.

The Austrian tutor team for Holy Moley - Lena, Kerstin and David – promised us a lot of kissing at their workshop presentation.But actually there is quite a lot of hard work too. You can see them working by the river, or maybe it is better to say sinking into the river. The workshop got off to a slow start, while the team gathered ideas and put them together to design the best water mill ever. Their work consists of a lot of adventures such as swimming with the tools, going around Žužumberk and looking for some suitable old material. The idea is to use only left overs, which they can get from municipality or the local farmers. Because of some difficulties with equipment, Holy Moley has to use only man power, which makes things a little more complicated.

Mostly EASA is about architecture - but there are quite a lot of workshops that aren’t really about construction or planning, but about thinking. We already reviewed Onion and you must know by now that they were doing pretty strange philosophical stuff. Today they finally went into the field and began to bring their ideas to life. On Friday morning while walking to the castle, everyone could see a group of people holding their hands above their heads at the pavilion site. They

were all wearing black and didn’t move at all. By the way, the participants were standing on the concrete foundations for the pavilion, which are one of a few things already finished. What does this all mean? The tutor says that the participants were performing the hardwork of the crew building the pavilion. However, some other meanings might be found if you dwell more on it. The guys, dressed in black, did actually look like support beams for the future construction.

The locals also took part in the performance - some of the passers by just stopped and joined in. It was funny to see how both children and elderly became the supports of the future EASA pavilion. Seems like we’re accepted? However, the tutors of onion say it was really a tryout for the future performances and a kind of exercise. They promise to do something bigger soon, involving the river. We can’t wait!

So here it is. After nearly a week of expectation, yesterday night the crowd was entertained by the first episode of easa tv. Everyone crowded round the stage in the castle at 11 pm, right after the daily lectures ended. As a regular and popular workshop at EASA everyone was very curious and excited about it. The video itself was about 9 minutes long and it was a collage of several short movies, covering workshops and interviews with the organisers. Despite Alioša stating he was not a funny guy, the easa tv crew proved him wrong so he and Martha were the fist organizers to give a funky interview. Umbrella loved the use of footage from last years national evening. They also did not forget the burning issue of the fuckpack, interviewing both sides, presenting the organizers point of view but also the participants. Umbrella is very happy to be among the workshops featured in the first episode. Tapaland, Rekukivate, Easa FM and Onion were also in it. To conclude, the screening got good reviews from the viewers and are all waiting for the next one as soon as possible. Stay tuned for announcements of the next screening.

Peter, Ireland

I bathe in sunscreen every day because I’m rapidly turning the colour of a tomato.

Seems like writing in this section every day still won’t cover all the talented people here! Meet Rebeka (Pinosa) Maribor, Slovenia, who manages to combine architecture studies with working at RADIO TOP for one and a half years already! Rebeka has had a passion for music since childhood and even plays two kinds of flute, the piano and the ukulele! So it was a sign from heaven when she stumbled upon an ad on facebook about a vacancy on the radio, that turned out to be only a two minute walk from home. Since then she reviews and plays dance music 3 hours per day. Isn’t it amazing to do so much cool stuff at the same time! We are pretty sure that there are plenty of part-time radio DJs at EASA, and there is even EASA FM. Umbrella heard a rumour that EASA FM might be up and running pretty soon, so maybe Rebeka should pay them a visit!

H el lo m y d e a r E A S A i a n s , Unfortunately gossip girl got too drunk yesterday, and is feeling a little worse for wear. But I still have your secrets.... And who am I? Thats one secret I’ll never tell. You know you love me xoxo Gossip Girl

Andras, Hungary I’m fine, thanks.

Pernille, Denmark

It’s like a diet thing. You just sweat out all the fat.

LAST NIGHTS LECTURE Yesterday in the evening you could attend the lecture presented by Alexander S. Ostan – an awarded architect and well-known member of EASA family. His lecture, titled (Young) Architect’s mission in the time of crisis; What can critical profession do for a better world? was really successful among our upcoming future architects. Alexander’s speech wasn’t about his own completed projects. Primarily he described how a changing understanding of universe has affected the public perception of architecture.



HAPPY BIRTHDAY! If anyone has any birthdays coming up, please let us know!

Samue Dubois, Canada, 24

Yesterday the citizens of our country easa changed their “skin” to that of a Salamander - black and yellow. Djs Rafael and Roland played quite relaxing electronic music. Lots of people had been starving for such an atmosphere at the parties and yesterday they got a package of refreshing, loosening up fun. Big thanks to Illustration/Illumination for the festive mood that we got with the fluorescent bracelets! In addition to the main play list

on the stage, you could also hear the way your body sounds with the help of interactive structure made and brought here by Belarussian architecture collective Monogroup, who are known here as the City bot tutor team. Some Irish guy was so inspired by this device that he decided to share his joy with everyone and had a naked run around the castle court. We can’t miss the fact by the way that Irish team will get the title of the hardest party animals at this easa

for sure! Anyway it seems that this installation has some effect on people. Don’t miss it tonight, it’ll be on show one more time at 22.00 downstairs to the right from the stage. P.S And don’t be fooled by the medicine taste of Jägermeister, Even though it contains some herbs it won’t heal you no matter how much you drink it. Tested on ourselves....
