Letter's to the major
Architects are invited to write letters to their mayors, initiating a dialogue between those who represent a city and those that build it. International iterations, organized in partnership with local institutions and individuals, bring the project to cities and towns across the globe. Each of the iterations share three common elements: an exhibition of letters addressed to the mayor, a Mayoral Desk and Architect’s Table, and a wallpaper that reflects ideas and issues unique to each city. The desk and table, as well as the wallpaper, are designed by local architects, artists, and designers, and reflect upon the role of the architect in the construction of the future of the contemporary city.
The aim of the Madrid´s major table is helping visualize the difference of importance given to social and political issues from the inhabitants of a city and the political party.
The image is constructed by putting layers of paper of the amount of words of an issue that appear in the political propaganda and tearing them ripping them depending on how much importance this issue was given by the votants in the political surveys.
