The Program for the project was to present the dominant recurring themes of the stories of Romeo and Juliet in an architectural form at the site of the Capulet and Montague castles. A clear acrylic Box contained reproductions of the original drawings silkscreened on acetate sheets. A limited number of these sheets were printed. Each set offered contains three consecutive sheets forming a coherent drawing unit, on three acetate sheets,  These Sheets are from a set purchased at the time of the exhibition, and in the hands of a private collector until now.
