Year of project
The "monks of public life" move into Erzsébet tér on a rotating basis.
The commitment of the community operating in a formalised way is to decommodify, maintain and activate the city's main square. The aim of the masterwork is to add visual content to the image of the "secular monastery".
The spatial composition, organised around the former bus station, is a chain of juxtaposed archetypal spatial units that can serve as a background for urban rituals.
