SEE AND BE SEEN Re-engagement With The Public Domain
This presentation focuses on the need for contemporary public space to communicate on social, psychological and contextual levels, in response to the present Age of Information and Ecology. As an alternative to those ubiquitous slabs of concrete, lollypop trees and ‘plop art’ sculptures - associated with industrial age traditions inherited from the 1920s and 30s – the lecture content proposes a design approach where people interaction becomes as much a part of the raw material of conceptual development as paving surfaces and landscape features.
