»Constructing Paradise« was exhibited in a blue pavilion in the baroque castle garden of Schwerin in Germany. Over the course of the Bundesgartenschau (BUGA) a paradise-specialist provided interested visitors with additional information and explained the paradises and their use.

The suggested concepts are outlined in a manual which includes many hints and useful advises for setting up an individual paradise at ones home. While following the recommendations, the user can get started with the Eden paradise, which stands for the most natural and original of all ideas of paradise. The Purgatory paradise represents a counter concept to the idyllic and depicts places of pain and amazement. The Baroque paradise visualizes disciplined nature, while the moon paradise creates a utopian place and shows the plurality of worlds. The Hawaii concept contains images and souvenirs of an actual realized paradise. The Shipping paradise, however, stands for the search for adventure and the extraordinary. Finally, the seventh paradise shows the Drugstore, which is the place of speed and stimulation.
