You can sit down by the table at the lower level of the arena structure, share food with others and welcome visitors. It fosters inclusivity, diversity and demonstrates the ritual of welcoming. Here everyone is welcome at the table and welcome to join in the debate. The project aims to rethink the archetypal amphitheatre space.

It becomes a tribune for exchange and expression in various media such as sound, music, dance and both the still and moving image. It is as much a place for entertainment as a political space.

The project suggest to the local community that the expression of oneself should be as natural as eating or drinking. Politics, democracy, entertainment and partying simultaneously shape the spaces of communal living.

A large part of the project has been focused into the building process, the design team aims to give to the community the tools to answer their spatial needs, from outdoor table and benches to a parliament.

In order to do that, Marquet, Polaert and Nemec, designed a large parametric assembly production line. These workbenches can be adjusted and organised according to the various typologies that have been used to build a table is parliament installation. Thanks to those tools they succeed to build a very large highly complex structure with a large amount of variables in a really short time. Only 5 days were needed to assemble the project with basics tools (circular saw and power drill) and very simple raw materials. (pine wood cleats and boards)
