The project was designed & built by Rotterdam based architect Noa Haim and was supported by the Dutch Embassy in Madrid, COAM, CentroCentro and Universidad Europea de Madrid (European University of Madrid).

The project Initiated in a site specific installation made for London Festival of Architecture 2008. Through a series of explorations in objects, space and experience Collective Paper Aesthetics are reloading Buckminster Fuller octet truss patent with the idea of the world game.
The work Spaceship Heart is examining the question how can we make together a place people truly loves? During Semana de la Arquitectura visitors in CentroCentro were constructing Spaceship Heart, using 400 modular cardboard building blocks.
Each element in the installation consists of eight similar faces. Each face is representing a program in hypothetically mixed-use structure. The end result will embody, apart from the symbolic heart shape a self-planned programmatic organization for a new place people truly loves.
