Green is a series of photographs documenting the specific locations of the largest housing projects in Central Europe, Petržalka. According to the original concept, his district, now often seen as a symbol of interventions into Bratislava´s urban structure by the communist regime; was meant to be a modern urban neighborhood based on modernist principles with lots of green areas and parks. As either the original urban concept has not been completely developed and finished, the planned green areas seem to be created spontaneously and randomly. Project Green is focusing on these green areas and recreational zones, on their specific character and the "archeology" of this locality. The inspiration for my project was the black construction of 5 holes golf course, which was built by private high school directly between a block of flats. They were not able to finish the building and so complement the concept of urban archeology. Many grassed over material pits, or heaps that were left on their original locations, extinct sandpits from playgrounds, sidewalks indicating ornamental compositions are reminding the component units of absent holes of this original suburb golf course. Thus a contradictory combination arises - suburban housing estates representing lower housing standards and society hand in hand with golf as an attribute of luxury and high social status. The eighteen photographs of Petržalka also represent 18
holes of a golf course.
