‘Friction in public space’ is the 7th tickle research booklet that examines the enrichment of public space experience through overlapping functions and activities. The new booklet is an exciting addition to TCL’s growing research collection.
The research emerged from a dynamic in house studio, conducted with RMIT University, that occurred over a four month period. This studio led by Jen Lynch, posed the question; ‘How do we define public space via the idea of ‘friction’? How do we represent public space that reconciles issues between its flux and form? ‘
The catalogue is structured around key essays, student work, project images and multiple conversations, each addressing the chosen site, Melbourne’s Queen Vic Market’s complex. Tickle is currently working on the next booklet to expand this collection, exploring the forest designs at the Canberra National Arboretum.
