The main idea of the original project of "urban interventions" from 2007 was a call of its authors - the architects Matúš Vallo and Oliver Sadovský - for their architect colleagues to choose and design for free an architectonic solution of a problematic location of public space within the centre of Bratislava.

The platform like this, enabling architects to design projects without frequently found counter-productive influence of investors, foreshadowed project’s success with the authors and the public. It was gradually executed in other cities. Especially nowadays, facing a lack of democracy in designing cities and thus public space and architecture, and the formulation of which is possible only indicatively, the execution of this project in Trnava is a positive signal.

Fifty registered projects in Urban Interventions Trnava 2016 should, however, not present aesthetic corrections of public space. The identification of the problematic area in public space is one of the primary tasks of the project and public discussion, encouraging of which is among the project goals too. The following enunciation or formulation of this problem should serve as a base for design of the solution. The solutions are exhibited in Jan Koniarek Gallery in Trnava, Synagogue - Center of Contemporary Art, presented as visualisations in a form of posters.

The exhibition is a specific project within the concept of Jan Koniarek Gallery in Trnava and has the ambition to create a meeting point of several interests - of urban specialists, citizens and experts in the field of architecture and art. Together with the project catalogue, it is also a way how to show urban specialists other options of creating and developing the public space.
