|Process of construction and dismantling|
In the fall of 1998 I reconstructed a full scale inverted replica of my private office as a free standing pavilion extracted from the building proper. This pavilion, situated at the entrance gate of the courtyard of building N51 was carefully replicated using identical materials and exact scale for every detail. By inverting the walls of my office, interior and exterior surfaces are exactly turned inside-out, transforming my private space into a public sign.
