A collaborative project on Human-centered design, focused on designing a fence that instead of separating people it could bring them closer. The project included a process that began with a concept/problem definition, ideation and sketching and concluded on a finalized prototype.
Our brief is that through a fence that provides unrestricted fun and movement, and/or that gives people the chance to share their stories, the goal of our project is to create opportunities for people to interact with each other in Dessau.
The project is targeted towards every citizen who’s passing by around the location where the installation is taking place.
The installation lasts up to 8 hours in the same location. Afterwards, the tubes are removed and placed in another fence in a different part of the city.
This project was co-designed with Andrea Cuellar, Estefanía Eid and Clara Cristina Rego. It was done for our Master’s degree studies (2016).
