Festival Exhibition: Public Space Interface

installation1
Standard

As part of the 2012 Parsons Festival, we are exhibiting the proposals developed by our fabulous student teams from our spring workshop Public Space Interface, supported by IBM. The works will be on display from May 12- 25h on the 12th floor of 6 e. 16th St. NYC

The proposals were developed in response to four different intersections of the city, along Broadway: 125th, 37th, Canal and Wall St. Themes of public engagement, play, surveillance and information were collaboratively developed by our student teams within the short period of one week, over the spring holiday.
