Nine foundation blocks had to be ripped out from the existing site, as it required adaptation in the course of building the extension wing. Instead of getting rid of them, as it was planned I have integrated them in my project FUND. Positioned as groups of three at the borders of the new plinth, they get a new function in the recreation area. The fragments have a plastic quality and show traces of violent fractures and deliberate core drilling.- New locations with different qualities and new forms of usage occur and can be appropriated by the students. Coated zones superimpose the past and put the blocks in a new condition. The origin of the blocks is related directly to the the architectonical site. Through the temporal shift and the relocation just incidentally a metaphor for the breakup situation of the adolescent unfolds.
