How the idea of the exposition was born?
Kateřina Soukupová, M PLUS
The investor came across the idea of an exposition focused on human sexuality almost at the last moment. While competitions for other expositions took place in 2012, the one originally called MAN II – SEX MISSION was covered a year later. Our participation in the competition was decided by a certain free room in the specification, as well as by the topic itself and its exclusivity. Having won the tender, we first felt taken by panic rather than happy: “Can we cope with that on such a short term?”
