The garage project

by Tehnica Schweiz

For The Garage Project, 2007-2009, we started to explore Hungary's longest garage line in Dunaújváros. The garage yard, which has been built for the workers of the Iron Factory, was part of the development and modernization of the town built in the beginning of the 1950s, though it was finished only ten years later, towards the end of the 60s.

Today, the garage city is mostly a meeting point for men, for getting a rest from the family, and also a spot for adolescent culture. Vast garage doors hide secrets, private places, different hobbies and professions.

Our work had three stages. In order to understand the diversity of garage usage, and learn more about its construction, first we tried to document as many existing garage interiors as possible. In the second stage of the project we rented a garage ourselves. We asked our friends to imagine what the garage doors could hide and plan in their own garages. Among our own ideas, we created these and photographed them.

In the end we organized a garage festival, for which anybody could come and bring any program. As a result of this, nearly all resident amateur music bands (for which the garage is also their rehearsal room), bikers,
Technique Cinematic arts (Video,...)
