A former free land became a strategic target. Green meadows were vanished and concrete and machines took over to serve the country. The arsenal, being independent, would create an identity. After years and years, the gated community was fading out. Nature slowly takes over again and so are the civilians.
The trial period... Celebration of new grounds, in small and bigger circles. No more blank page, but potential there is. To return the site to the people, by serving our planet. Following up, a talk with all its owners. A meaningful intervention, with recognition for what used to be and great ambition for what will be. Bright future.. Creating a sustainable tradition, meaning a celebration that can last on one hand and is being gentle to our climate on the other. Food and art to communicate and bring people together. Bread is universal, pizza became it. Circular food cycles and circular buildings processes to create a green village of what was once the opposite.
Remembering and learning from the past, while learning from our experiments today, so our experiments can become new traditions in the future.
