This project, A Public Attic for Helsinki, was part of the Helsinki Festival in 2004 and faced the Parliament of Finland. All the materials used were recycled from various construction sites in Helsinki. This way, it was a temporary collage of material streams produced by the city. A city can have an attic, a public attic to reflect the collective subconscious. During the festival, people were bringing objects to the Public Attic and exchanged them for free. This way, the building became a small, spontaneous community centre and a form of improvised architecture. All the objects are tied to stories. This way, the attic is also a narrative space. For the construction of the Public Attic a team from the Bauhaus University, consisting of Christian Edlinger, Dirk Schultz and Daniel Guishardt, was essential. The attic was demolished after the festival.
