Permanent Impermanence

Łódź, the third city of Poland and the former textile center of Eastern Europe faces poverty, vacant buildings and overdue maintenance. With our design philosophy Permanent Impermanence in mind, studioMERZ developed some concepts that help the city transform in a consistent and flexible manner.

Taking the interim as a solution instead of a problem, Łódź can adapt to the ever changing demands of the modern city.

The concepts are the result of a workshop in Łódź with architect Henk Luttje.
