Grey cardboard envelope. Booklets printed in offset in one color (black). Covers and folders printed in offset in two colors (black and green) on white paper.
Edition with 6 booklets entitled: “Les Racines du Mal”, “Temporary Autonomous Zone”, “Buro Fur Umtriebe”, “Plans & Directions”, “Stairway to Heaven” and “Fight Club”.

Each booklet contains a technical drawing and information (name, specificity, description, dimensions, material and purpose) of a structure to be built and used in a public space. All these structures question the use of public space and each person’s limit of freedom.
For example, Stairway to Heaven is a public space for an individual use, giving the opportunity to a person to display herself in an elevated platform. Fight Club (as David Fincher’s movie) delimitates a zone with no rules. Plans & Directions is a poster displaying the concept:
“ Illegality as the only liberated territory inside metropolises.”
