Pallet
Standartized europallet,
modified to ride in the tram tracks.
Realized in Bratislava, Slovakia.
2008

The space between the tram tracks in Bratislava is 435 mm narrower than
the gauge of tracks in Prague or Pilsen (1435 mm). The wooden europallet,
a basic feature of any warehouse or storage hall, with its standartized
1200×800 mm dimensions, when modified can only run on the tracks
in Bratislava.

A new transport vehicle brings change into the spatial perspective of a passenger
in motion and generally changes the life of the city, through which the pallet can run,
guided by a map of the city lines.
