Minimalistic approach became possible because OK16 was placed on the street wich was urban- and artistically converted by previous project I was co-curating, "Vulica Brazil".
Otherwise, practical experience of lean space adaptation was taken from my earliest project, first Minsk industiral space converted into cultural hub, ME100 ("the Place").
For long 3 years OK16 became literally place and (sometimes) literally home for young, emerging and contemporary Belarusian and global culture. 99% invisible - is perfect sence to describe OK16 architecture, while it WAS totally and throughout designed to host and intersect visions, concepts, artists, business people and general audience, creating various assemblages of them. And, despite it's complex conceprual elaboration, it wasn't high brow - it was brightest place of the city.
I'm sure, all places need such kind of lean and open spaces, designed to be multidisciplinary sensitive and collaboration-producing. Invisible architecture is what makes it happen.
