And the value of the artworks can’t be lower than 1% of the price paid for the land lot
The Free Room is a copy of the sleeping boxes but it is transparent, in glass, with the purpose to be a see through box, in order to work as a bubble of artistic experience
Zero is not a regular hotel, but a box lodge, in which the rooms have no windows, so that guests can rest at any time of the day, regardless of external conditions. Also, if visitos enjoy the city until late, they can have breakfast until 7:00 pm. In addition to these rooms, there is the Free Room, a space without price that can be occupied by those who present artistic proposals of the most diverse areas of space use. The Free Room will be an installation, live or not, but permanent, at the entrance of ZERO Box Lodge, in Porto. It is a copy of the sleeping boxes but it is transparent, in glass, with the purpose to be a see through box, in order to work as a bubble of artistic experience. It has a bathroom that is not transparent. It will be occupied throughout the year and will allow the participation of all those who present artistic, cultural, innovative proposals of the most diverse and surprising formats.
The Free Room aims to promote the cultural agitator element that so much characterises the ZERO Box Lodge project. The Free Room is intended to be used as a laboratory space but can retain its original function – to be a room, a box, where one can sleep. Meaning, sleeping can also be an artistic installation. And for free. Those who present a proposal for the Free Room must send the details of the project, the start and end date of the activity. The duration of the proposals may vary from one day, one week, one month – the ZERO Box Lodge Administration will aprove the ideas most suitable to the Free Room’s purposes. Only persons over the age of 18 can apply and only proposals with a minimum advance of 2 weeks will be accepted.
The price of monthly passes, however, will remain the same so that regular commuters won’t have to worry
