The drug consumption space DrobInn in central Hamburg gives consumers of hard drugs a zone to legally and medically supervised inject and smoke.
350 - 500 people come here every day. 80% of them are homeless, many have marginalized vitae. Here they find a social framework and support aswell as medical advice.

The project has been developed with Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe and ConstructLab.
