We want our architecture to be shared. We coordinate the design of the display stands and furniture so that everyone can use them. We place one distinctive piece in every room to display the artists work, for anyone to sit and relax on them, and to stage performances on them. Because of its size, the piece becomes an additional component of the buildings architecture with the same rights as the walls, the floor and the ceiling. Our construction material was old parquet floors we discovered in the Ujazdowski Castle's basement. We made simple wooden constructions to give them a new function, a basis for the exhibition participants collaborative activities.
