It may have been a while between posts, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy!
The TICKLE booklet series is expanding with booklet .07, Friction in Public Space, soon to be completed. You may recall our posts on the TCL-RMIT studio collaboration, ‘Messy Compositions.’ The booklet, like these posts, aims to share the outcomes of the Upper Pool Studio’s explorations on the relationship between composition and messiness in the design of public space.
The soon-to-be-released booklet .07 will question:
- How do we define public space vis-à-vis the ideas of ‘friction’ –
Between programs and processes,
Between past and present,
Between scales and qualities,
Between self and other,
Between public and private self.
- How do we represent public space – the friction of/between its flux and form?
- How do we approach the design of public space in a way that might catalyze friction?
Keep an eye on the Tickle Blog for more details on booklet .07 Friction in Public Space.
