What Remains!? is a long-term project that revolves around the planning of a large-scale urban development project in Zagreb, the civil protests against it and the situation after the success against the project.
Julia Gaisbacher's documentation follows the fragmented building history of the planned construction area as a formal guide to capture past and present uses and functions of the area. The dialogue with space and architecture does not become a sculptural end in itself, but rather an inventory of human needs for the use of space.
