SOCIAL SEATING

This winning competition entry for a pop-up social seating system plays with the normative language of urban park benches, amplifying it into something unexpected. Looping canopies provide shade and encourage differing levels of interaction between people sitting on opposite sides of each loop. The installation has occupied prominent locations at The Porch adjacent to Philadelphia’s main railroad station as well as Clark Park and Drexel Park in West Philadelphia.
