What if a building could be certified “fair trade” like many other commercial products? This is the question upon which the curators of the Polish pavilion based a research, mostly made by interviewing construction workers, Poland presents at this year’s Architecture Biennale.

The building industry, despite all technological improvements, still largely relies on manual work; yet, besides national regulation for construction site safety, the construction process is nevertheless characterized by high levels of uncertainty and insecurity.

A large part of the Polish pavilion is occupied by scaffolding, which supports an array of monitors presenting the curators’ research; a second space was designed to resemble a fictional estate agency.
