"It will be possible to have a separate room, an opportunity to cry" - this is part of a statement made by a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Justice about a bill being prepared by Solidarna Polska. After several months of protests against the Constitutional Tribunal’s abortion ruling, we understood those words as: the state will force women to give birth, but will also offer them a special room wherethey can cry.

One of the internauts immediately asked isn’t Poland in general one big crying room. So we started to wonder about such a room. What would be in it? How would it be designed? We can imagine dozens of different solutions based on design and architecture, but we can also treat this space as something more symbolic, something that we are looking for inside ourselves. Taken out of its original context, the concept of a crying room fascinated us as a sort of  common ground that could become a place for support, catharsis, freedom or being together for a short while and without any compulsion.
