Football as Infrastructure of Democracy
Part of BETA 2022
Timișoara Architecture Biennial

The F.I.D. micronation is contained between the physical boundaries of a participatory architectural installation and the fair play rules of sport meetings. It is composed of a multi-functional scaffolding and a mini-soccer field, both serving the Fabric neighborhood community as a symbolic agora where, through sports and other spontaneous activities, free expression, community gestures and democracy in general can be performed.
