The big hexagonal structure is divided in 6 smaller equilateral triangles. Each of the 6 triangles offers a different hanging function for the public space.

Inspired by the triangulation of crystals’ structures, the project is shaped as a huge hexagonal structure from which different fun features are hanging down, creating a suspended public space.

This is a particular design approach that has been researched and tested for a while in our office, and has been finally implemented in an outdoor public space.

A hanging public space in which all the functions are provided from above, experimenting with the feeling of gravity added to daily public features.

The functions are hanging ball-swings, hammock nets, a hanging picnic, a pipe forest and a hanging lounge.

The hexagon arises from the graphics on the floor, combining two of the typical typologies researched in the office: Painted Scapes & Grounded Objects.

It is intentionally designed that way in order to provide a more immersive experience, which starts from its surroundings when approaching the object.

The Painted Scape on the floor makes it also more eye-catching not only to passersby, but to residents and workers that from the surrounding towers can have a top visual of the graphics.

The resulting installation is a very stimulating & instagrammable space for having fun, interacting with others, resting, playing and whiling away for some time in an open area.

Street Intervention

What is an street intervention?
This is the smallest scale of interventions that takes place in the public realm of a city, related to the altering of a portion or a whole street or square, whether vehicular or pedestrian, by adding or installing new alienated elements to the existing configuration of the street.
 
This typology intervenes existing urban settings by occupying the ground of a given area and by acting as an accessible and multifunctional platform, catalyzing social interactions. It is a tactical intervention with a non-territorial nature, keeping a clear formal and aesthetic distinction from the existing surroundings.
 
The main objective of this typology is to trigger a massive public interest to the place through a strong visual impact, usually of a temporary nature, encouraging the rise of high public affluence during a specific period of time, becoming a remarkable virtual landmark that attracts customers and cultivates important human dynamics and commercial activity.
