We trust in people, in functional public spaces, in thoughtful urbanism.

We trust in honesty.

We are experimenters, searching the lost, using the contemporary and discovering brand new qualities. It is our way of life and the decision to serve the society to bring quality, time confidence and pride.

We play with urban interventions, we create new places suddenly full of lives.

We invite art to public and private places, we do it sustainably and responsibly.

We educate through the generations, we improve the skills of children and young adults, we connect senior generations with the youth.

Through particular steps and methods, through the art and design, through communication and cooperation we gain our aim - tolerant, multicultural, sensitive world.

We are a research, education, and exhibition platform focused on incubating innovative ideas of curators/artists, and connecting them with local and international experts/audience. Our vision is to motivate people to think critically.

For his new way of thinking about the public space he is laureate of the CE-ZA-AR AWARD 2015 - national architecture award and later on of CE-ZA- AR 2019 by winning also a special award in category PUBLIC.

He became an expert in transforming school buildings into the places that meet the education needs of  the 21.st. He is a strong networker always seeking for honesty in society. His projects such as Šafko, Kontakt, Riviéra, Kontakt at Pohoda festivals and many more became a game changer in society which due to these projects started to perceive a public space in a different way.
