Bricolage + ecological = bricological The „Forum Stadtpark“ isn’t quite a blind spot in the city of Graz. On the contrary, it is a well-known and omnipresent space within the cultural life of the city, in terms of being an institution as well as a real building. Each year the “steirischer herbst” (styrian autumn) is arriving in the town and is moving in here in 2010. For 4 weeks the festival occupies this place and aims to convert it into a spatial as well as social forum of the styrian autumn 2010. How can you achieve a maximum of attention and real possibilities of different utilization without blowing up time and costs? The very core of our proposal lies in a quite common and simple element – the euro-palett. As a standardized and normed mass-product it was developed for the unrestrained movement of goods. This re-usable and recyclable pawned object is infinitely available, cheap and has great potential – if applied in a wily and virtuosic way. Used for purposes other than intended the EPAL constitutes the module for a temporary architecture like the brick does for a long-living house. The building material is only leased and afterwards can be brought to its original purpose of use. The new architecture with an expiry date crosses and fractures the existing building structure in a spatial as well as aesthetical way. A productive disturbance. In its short term existence it aspires toward a massive presence. A new axis breaches the habitual perception of space and at the same time provides varied new possibilities of use and performances: i.e. as a foyer, a carpet, an info-point, a stage, a flight of steps, a grandstand, a terrace, a casino, a bar, an auditorium, an open-air cinema, a dance floor, a café, a bridge, a gallery, the boards which mean the world. As an absurd monument – because in spite of the massiveness its appearance already announces convertibility, decomposition (disassembly) and disappearance – this structure marks a strong distinctive sign within the guiding theme.
