1. Knock at the doors of all the people living in 3 cantons of Switzerland asking for fabric;

2. Recruit professional and amateur tailors (without discrimination of gender and age);

3. Spread the tablecloth on the grass. It’s a delicate phase since it is as large as 100 football fields;

4. Have a picnic.

The Canadian studio Syverson Monteyne Architecture has expressly designed La Cuisine, saving the existing steel structure of a dismantled building and reconstructing it in a new form. The colorful building serves as a big seasonal kitchen facility with sliding walls protecting from bad weather and has a verandah for the festival-goers to meet and relax.
