CONTEXT

The idea of making a structure somebody could enter into, and be surrounded by, is a response to the need for an artwork that would transform a public space, reviving it.

Location: Shadërvan, Prizren, Republic of Kosovo<br> Architect: Senat Haliti<br> Collaborators: Margarita Azizi & Sead Haliti<br> Construction year: 2012<br> Photographs: Courtesy of S. Haliti & M. Azizi<br> Budget: 2000 €

It is comprised of three elements: ground, space and structure. Roots and heritage are represented by the traditional carpet interpreted on the ground while our European aspirations are represented by the structure itself. Based on “EU barcode” (AMO/Rem Koolhaas, 2001) EU member's flags are layered and painted in recycled wood, forming a house shaped space, as the most representative form of the “home”, a shelter for all. The color richness is about differences and diversity, as it stands also for harmony and beauty. The contemplation space is created in between the roots and structure. A space where people can reflect about the past and the future.
