In 1997, the German real estate savings bank Deutsche Bauspar AG in Frankfurt published a splendid series of graphic works aimed at raising public awareness of the need to improve artistic and architectural requirements in the creation of urban spaces. The organising institution invited ten internationally renowned artists and architects to express their ideas and proposals on the design of an imaginary public square or the improvement of an existing one in a graphic work.
This work is dedicated to the remodelling of the Ministry of Agriculture Square in Bonn. Hajek's design brings together in an exceptional way several elements that characterize all his work: a lively and harmonious chromaticism, a play of geometric forms of great plasticity as well as a clear reference to the mentioned "chromatic paths", curvilinear strips that cross the geometric landscape creating a mosaic of great visual richness.

After lucrative years developing his own work, based on geometrical combinations of heavy materials with primary colour details, Hajek was appointed president of the German Association of Artists (1972-1979), where he campaigned for the social security of artists, which had been unfair until that moment.
