was a project at Bucharest, in April 2014.

furniture design: Atelier Brut

>> Tranzit CAFÉ welcomes you in for three weeks of events created for the rediscovery of permaculture in a personal and social way. Species will be mingled, crossings between territories will be sought after, potentially harmful contacts will be identified. In close relation to the community garden outside (Tranzit Garden), the CAFÉ is designed to be a meeting spot, a working desk, a place for understated scenarios and a basic, yet open-to-all kitchen. Visitors should not avoid bringing in their skills, ideas or surplus of produce to share.

On the duration of the TranzitCAFÉ you are invited for three thematic evenings, within which you can test different roles that maybe you haven’t yet had the occasion to try. Keeping in mind the close relationship with the Tranzit Garden, these events are the meetings which purpose is to be discovered gradually and which, sometimes, artistic spaces have the chance to host.

"Mint is an attention-seeking, invasive plant".
Saturday, April 12, from 3 to 6 pm. 
For this event we ask you to bring an ingredient which can be used for a salad.

"Tomatoes and potatoes have the will and the abilities to sabotage each other".
Friday, April 25, from 3 to 6 pm.
For this event we ask you to bring an ingredient which can be cooked outside.

"The Flower Ball" (or "Petunia is a trap")
Wednesday, April 30, from 7 pm.
This will also be the closing event of TranzitCAFÉ.

Besides these events, you can spend time in the café, using it as a space for working, for meetings or relaxation. Every week, a selection of 10 books from the library will be available for reading in the space of the café. We offer tea, coffee, internet access and observation cards which you can fill in for a detailed understanding of the space in TranzitCAFÉ and around.
