Članovi ARCHIsquada prošle su godine ponudili savjetovalište o mijenjanju pogleda na prostor kao način poboljšanja stambenih uvjeta minimalnim financijskim sredstvima. Sada nas dočekuju s redizajnom prilaza Malom salonu, koji je zamišljen kao kolektivno okupljalište, zona privremenog zadržavanja i druženja. Pridodana, neformalna urbana oprema služi susretanju prigodom galerijskih aktivnosti, ali i ostalim mikropješačkim praksama usmjerenima njegovanju zajedništva; pričanju priča, tračanju, snatrenju, čikanju, opuštanju… Ako uzmemo u obzir ekonomski generirane faktore koji mijenjaju urbano okruženje, njegovu javnu namjenu i doživljaj, kao što su privatizacija, hiperkonzumerizam, arhitektura bezmjesnosti ili širenje principa mekog nadzora, otvoreni javni prostor sve više postaje pasaž, pristupni kanal mjestima potrošnje. Intervencija ARCHIsquada pokušaj je otpora, nastojanje stvaranja društvenog mjesta – umjesto zatečenog nemjesta.

In the last year’s Copula, the ARCHIsquad advised us how to change our views on space and find ways to improve our habitats with minimal investments. This year, they will redesign the exterior in front of Mali salon gallery, with the aim of transforming this space into a place of gathering, into a temporary hang-out zone. Leisurely objects used in this intervention will encourage socializing among the gallery visitors, but they will also promote other, micro-pedestrian practices that cultivate togetherness: storytelling, gossiping, daydreaming, smoking, relaxing… If we think about economic factors that alter the experience and purpose of our urban surroundings, such as privatization, hyperconsumerism, placelessness or soft control principles, outdoor public spaces turn into mere passages, channels leading to places of consummerism. ARCHIsquad’s intervention is an attempt of resistance, an effort to create a space for the public, in place of “non-place”.
