Objects are placed in "paper" rooms and tell five stories. The five rooms -- one for each story -- are a place for memory, a place for archives.

Fabric sodden with a glue mixture is the main building material — it assumes the color and density of papyrus and becomes a cover for the archive exhibits of different scales.

The layouts of the rooms are defined by stories and materials related to the exhibited projects. Thus, the room devoted to Igor Pyatkin, the architect of the Garage Museum's original building, takes the shape of a square; the one exhibiting the artist Francisco Infante-Arana's sound-and-light decoration proposal for the Red Square is a projecting beam; the third one, hosting "The Museum of Dreams", repeats the planned layout of the women artists dreams exhibition; the "Melancholy" exhibition planned by Pyotr Beliy for a park in St. Petersburg and a project by Pyotr Zherebtsov for an exposition without straight angles in Berlin shape the last two rooms.
