Casagrande Laboratory: Public Attic. Photo: Yehia Eweis.


A Public Attic for Helsinki facing the Parliament of Finland.

Attic is the memory of a house. In attic time is different. Attic is not routine, attic don´t have stress. All the objects are tied to stories. Attic is a narrative space. Also a city can have an attic. A public attic to reflect the collective subconscious.

For the construction of the Public Attic a team from the Bauhaus University was essential. Special thanks to Christian Edlinger, Dirk Schultz and Daniel Guishardt.

People were bringing objects to our Public Attic and exchanging them for free. This became a small spontaneous community centre. Improvised architecture.
