The Auction Room was an architecture- exhibition. Chairs, lighting, decoration, gavel, etc - were commissioned to different designers. Together they formed an auction room. The complete set of objects was exhibited for a week, at the end of which, everything was auctioned. Visitors could bid on their preferred items, using every form of currency except money. At the end of the auction, contracts were celebrated between creators and winning bidders. Most offers consisted of services, like the design of a website, travel or other goods.
