The Lithuanian city of Nida offers a new public space for its residents and visitors. The largest city at the Curonian Spit has been the centre of this years European Architecture Students Assembly. Within two weeks a team of 18 international architecture students completed a public space titled The Living Boom. This 50 m2 large public living room is located at the end of a pier, situated in the Curonian lagoon with views to the famous sand dunes, the forest and the city of Nida. The space is sheltered behind a giant wooden wall through which every visitor has to step in order to find oneself in a red, outwardly space.
