Hejduk was invited by the organizers of the XVII Triennale di Milano, under the direction of Pierluigi Nicolin, to submit a project for the Triennale's theme of 'Nine Projects for Nine Cities' (Shkapich, 12 Nov. 1992). This group of drawings and photocopies of preliminary sketches by Hejduk is based on the "MZ7" document, which was compiled under the direction of Giorgio Fiorese and Marsia Deimichei and includes site information and a series of photographs of the Bovisa district of Milan (Fiorese 1987, p. 41). Created by Hejduk in New York during the summer of 1986, the drawings are a combination of real and fictional architecture and figures based on the photographs of the "MZ7" document.
