Reactive Spaces
3-day workshop about design for public space.
Mobility in cities is changing, and the space taken up by private vehicles can fulfill other community needs.
This installation seeks to reactivate parking spaces, through three proposals generated in three days. Scrapped furniture and objects were used as a primary material.
the participants worked in 3 teams on different concepts.
After doing research on how public space could be transformed with a pop-up installation, 3 concepts were chosen based on people’s needs.
The participants were split into groups, and each one tackled a different concept with materials found in the street.

Amorphous
Mobile rest unit, generated from the shapes of reused materials.
It’s a set of different modular pieces, allowing people to display them at their preference, giving them freedom in their surroundings.
Ballavalla
Sound creation structure, generated from urban materials through experimentation with movement.
It’s made from a set of tubes based on the rain-stick instrument, which put on a construction fence magnifies the effect. This generates a game that invites people to reactivate an empty space.
Textugrama
Sensory and graphic representation of the different elements that form a public space.
It invites to interaction and reflection of the matter we daily overlook. On the opaque side it allows us to feel it without discriminating its origin; on the other it shows us reality. It gives a circular and eternal life to materials that are usually discarded.
