As the foundations of a new cultural district start to be laid, you are invited to take part in a spectacular architectural event devised by the French artist Olivier Grossetete. Over several days, hundreds of cardboard boxes will be transformed into the building blocks of a democratically assembled building, created solely through human power and collective endeavour. On Saturday watch in amazement and lend a hand as extraordinary new structures rise from the ground. Then on Sunday admire the completed building before joining in a massive demolition.
