With the Second Chance project, co-financed by the European Union, we undertook a conceptual revitalization of the former Rog factory in order to determine appropriate content for the future Rog Centre. One of the main results of the project is RogLab, a space for creation, education and presentation that seeks to answer the question of what a contemporary production environment for architecture, design and visual arts should look like. RogLab has been operating since October 2012. Photo: RogLab
