Hello Wood's 'Project Village' is a rural construction process aimed to create a 21st century globalized town. Created by people from around the world, it tests the different concepts of private property, multi-faith groups and immigration. Since everyone was from different countries, there was no preconceptions for what kinds of architecture best suited different kinds of buildings -- leading to an organic process and result.

The project is to last three years, currently in its first: the construction phase focused on engagement of social space and usage. The next will watch it grow, creating borders and even defense if necessary. The final year of Project Village will witness ways to recycle, reuse and deconstruct to test various ideas for the sustainability or demise of a rural area.
