The research of this project will focus on how design can influence and contribute to the creation of public domains, counteracting the capsularization of society.The students are asked to come up with concepts, scenarios, orgwares that facilitate new forms of collectivity, as spheres where exchange and interaction between different individuals and groups is stimulated and where trust can be created.

My subject is “counteracting the capsularization of society in public space” which facilitate interaction between different individuals.

Standard public furniture can’t make people feel closer or more intimate. Thus I want to make public furniture that encourages people closer to each other naturally.

I want to design which counteracts the capsularization of individuals in public space. Which means that improves a interaction and exchange between individuals, furthermore extend and connect individual’s capsule.
