In one of the districts of Lódz, where almost seventy-one thousand people live, a small thorn house was built between the concrete buildings. This small, wooden structure becomes a place to observe the wonders of everyday interactions. The taste of the sun, salt and concrete fills the conversations. There is space to breathe.
Na jednym z lodzkich osiedli miedzy betonowymi blokami zamieszkiwanymi przez prawie 71 tysiecy ludzi zbudowano mala teznie solankowa. Wokol tej niewielkiej drewnianej struktury moga odbyc sie niezwykle w swej codziennosci spotkania. Rozmowy miedzy ludzmi wypelnia smak slonca, soli i betonu. I oddech.
