The work was made within the exhibition 'Models for Tomorrow: Cologne' and serves as a basis for Greenfort's ideas on alternative building methods. The delicate construct of various materials, including photographs of advertising billboards, refers to the 'Tanzbrunnezelt' created in 1957 for the Bundesgartenschau in Cologne by the German architect Frei Otto. Despite its formal language, borrowed from architectural models, it is more of a plea for flexible architectural structures than an actual miniature of a fictional building.
