In Messel's memorandum Claire de Wangen wanted to contribute to putting a spotlight on Oslo's left buildings.

The production can be a reminder of the many stories a building can contain, stories absorbed by the walls.

Claire de Wangen wants to encourage people to get involved in the future use of the former nursing home at Lille Tøyen.
