"Swept under the carpet". These words could describe the collaboration of an artist (P.R.) with an architect (C.M.). The red polymer carpet marks a big area in the centre of St Gallen, creating "public space". This is the whole idea of the intervention: to animate and recreate urban life. The result is a continuous space, a surface that contains everything, from benches to a car. A daring way to create a public space.
