Down ABOUT "PUBLI-X-PACE"

Publi-X-pace is a further development of the project, Public Spaces In Center City. The yellow chair, X is a planned spontaneity in any open spaces (public or private spaces). The X is more than a physical space. "X marks the spot" effect of the X begins to engage the populace to question typical norms and the nature of public/private spaces: where people go to congregate, relax or pass the time.

 

To engage more people and raise the awareness of what a public space really means, we also created an online gallery for the X. These geo-tagged images show where the X is used and how it relates to the environment. We also encourage X users to send their photos to be posted. Thus, we seek more interaction among populace in evaluate what a public space really is.

 

A promtional animation was created for the Public Space project that can be found here, "Planned Sponaneity."

 

This project was shown at the Design Does exhibition in Philadelphia.
