A portable reading room in the public space
The project results of the premise to create a versatile and portable piece that can be located anywhere in the world acting as an urban maker, where people can feel invited and welcome to take a book and gather around for a while. With the idea of creating an open, accessible space that can provide the adequate environment to encourage reading to the passing walkers, the installation is designed as a “curtain” or panel that is shaped in a curved way based on some support elements that are fixed in different positions, and then combined with modular units of furniture positioned in many manners.
As a result, the project is never the same object, having endless possibilities even when it is the sum of the same elements.
