The Sproutbau building is a multi-storey block at Brema built in the nineteen seventies, which was emptied to be knocked down. Before it was demolished it was handed over to creative artists and guests to manage for a month for a housing project. They moved into the building and made it their home and atelier. The project was born from an idea by the Brema curator and artist Christina Vogelsang, with Annika Schmeding and AAA (Autonomes Architektur Atelier). This team named itself Team N and started to broadcast the idea together with a ‘call’ to artists and at the same time it started practical work in the preparation for the projects in the place. More than twenty projects arrived from all over the world proposed by people who wanted to participate. Consequently more than fifty people moved into the building on 1st August 2007 in abandoned apartments and they woke it from its slumber.

Keywords: Sproutbau; temporary re-use; art on the outskirts.
