Here is what raumlabor explains:

“The Kitchen Monument is a mobile sculpture which has two states of being. This zinc sheetclad sculpture can be extended into public space by a pneumatic spatial mantle that transforms it into a temporary collective space. Different programmes are staged in different places. Its broad spectrum of uses includes a banquet hall, conference room, cinema, concert hall, ballroom, dormitory, boxing arena and steam bath.”
