In order to approach the interaction with the natural environment and to transfer the cooperative, improvised play in the forest into the context of the city, noddel was created. Through an imaginative plot and instructions for learning knotting techniques, the rope becomes a universal connector. The stable, yet formally flexible beam base, in conjunction with the wildwood elements and variable additional material, creates an area where the theoretical becomes real. Noddel enters into a dialogue with the children, challenges them and helps them to experience themselves through cooperation.
