The space above the garage was originally designed as a public area for the locals. It is used for recreation and socializing premises and helps to form and maintain the sense of the community for those who live close to the high-rise building. However, the area was closed to the public in the late 1980s due to safety and health protection concerns. We created an exhibition here showing some possible uses for the space. People from the buildings brought objects that would bring people and their common interests together. I put branches on a lamppost, to express the need for less concrete and more greenery in the space.
dimensions: street lamp, tree branches, height 350 cm
