We are an art and architecture practice working within and towards public space.
All public works projects address the question how the public realm is shaped by its various users and how existing dynamics can inform further proposals. Our focus is the production and extension of a particular public space through participation and collaborations. Projects span across different scales and address the relation between the informal and formal aspects of a site.
Our work produces social, architectural and discursive spaces.
Outputs include socio-spatial and physical structures, public events and publications.
