The statement claims that architectures shall contribute to situation and users, and create spillover effects. With this we point out that architecture should give something back to the city beyond the minimum requirements. The city requires a thorough management of areas and infrastructure, due to the population growth. Architecture is a tool to society- and city development, and may in good examples act beyond its boundaries and own interests. Architecture as isolated and glorified singular objects is less interesting in the relationship between architecture and the city life. The statement emphasizes solid interventions instead of news value.

The statement is concretized with a greenhouse that handles sunlight and the spread of rainwater, shaped like a characteristic house. This creates a green footprint, which converts CO2 to O2. It is a symbol of architecture that reveals the potential of the situation, which again gives something back to the users through fresh air to the city.
