The Ghost Estate Edition

For HACK THE CITY, the Fabbers are moving to Ireland. Hackers and makers re-claim ownership of abandoned parts of the Irish urban sprawl. Squatting the unfinished remains of the Celtic Tiger with lightweight high-tech infrastructures such as mobile cleanrooms, 3D printers and energy generators, they set up local factories, fighting back collapsed bubble economics. They cater to local needs, create new income and breathe life back into the ruins.
