Horizontal (Floor) — silver markings superimposed on the floor of the gallery delineate the ground plan of a single-room apartment built in 1926 by the newly founded Housing Cooperative for Working Women. Their desire to live independently among other women was justified by the economic incorporation of the female workforce into the region’s growing metal industry. Planned with architect Lux Guyer, the apartments were built to conform to modern living standards – mini bourgeois flats with single beds.
