Text description provided by the architects. Jakub Szczęsny and Hadas Tuval redefine the rooftop as a public space, where city dwellers get a chance to form a community and weave new connections under a temporary canopy. Together, they created a shaded shelter on the Liebling Haus rooftop. This lightly covered space - a hybrid of a sail and a tent - invites visitors to explore the thin line separating belonging and connection from seclusion and disconnection.

Modernist architecture introduced urban rooftops as the Fifth Façade, referring to their potential to serve as shared public spaces, where the building's residents can bond and create a community. However, in recent years, these spaces have become a symbol of the antithesis: the contemporary trend of spatial appropriation and deliberate isolation.

The metal cables Szczęsny extended across the rooftop are the Warp to Tuval's Weft, weaved from sacks previously used in a temporary installation on Bialik Square by Raumlabor (originally used for cushioning the merchandise inside shipping containers) that have been recycled, dismantled, and placed in a new array. The two artists attempt to reconnect the neighbors - the newcomer Liebling Haus and its surrounding buildings - through new connections and relationships.
