Interdisciplinary teamwork

‘At one point a friend asked me to come and live with her in a dorm.'

'We moved my furniture on a cargo bike. I started living in the attic of 3 square meters and ended in a room of 12 square meters. Fellow students (eight, studying at different faculties) were met in the kitchen or in the bathroom. A few times a month we would organize a party. Cleaning of corridors, bathroom and kitchen was teamwork. I already learned about ‘interdisciplinary teamwork’ when the word was not even invented yet. During the study I learned my trade, but through my dorm I learned about society.’
