““What crawls after the dusk?”” 

by Marcin Kitala and Zygmunt Maniaczyk from Czestochowa, Poland

From the author: “We will not revitalize the complex. We will not renew buildings or restore their former glory. We do not refresh the plaster or repaint the walls. […] We will not do it like everybody does. Since buildings fell into ruin, apparently it had to happen. We do not apply any anastylosis or restore original details of cornices or handles. We will build right next to them, and certainly we will not refer to them. And we leave them to themselves. And even we help them in their fall. We will, however, continue to use them. Through one summer or two, let this be a unique event. This kind lasts longer in the memory. The basis for the whole development of the space. is to create an enclave, in which the dominant role will act, created by man. “wild” Jungle. […] The old buildings are demolished, but not quietly and without reason, but in the spotlight and during the time of the Performance announced for this purpose. Each will have Its role, and each one will disappear during one Performance. […] The rule of Variety is at the center of the composition: variety of routes, variety of places, variety of functions, sights, materials, windows and forms. The volumetric composition of the block provides for a fragmentation of the main shape into smaller, the overall size respects the alignments of the historic fabric; at the same time is introduced and promoted the principle of variety: the fragmentation of the quarter in individual gathering buildings breaks the monotony and the heaviness of a too large and trivial block. ”
