Contemporary city is a great challenge for architecture, and especially for small urban architecture. Moreover, its inhabitants are demanding as well – they need something creative and  functional at the same moment, something that will not only be another type of decoration, but it has to add a new qualities to their city.

We are more and more willing to attach importance to looks of our surroundings, things that we use every day and to our cities. It is demonstrated by the growing number of different festival about design, fashion and trends.
