WHO : PEOPLE OF ALL AGE GROUPS

PURPOSE : SPACE FOR SOCIAL INTERACTION BETWEEN THE HOMELESS and the PRIVILEGED.

WHAT : DESIGN INSTALLATION TO BE MODULAR, DEPLOYABLE

Homelessness has become a social problem. Homelessness has becoming a part of the culture and a brand for cities today. This problem is growing due to the current situation of the world economy. I see the soup kitchen as a place where homeless people can get food, temporary shelter and interact socially. Portland, Oregon is one such city, which is homeless friendly. The interaction could be in forms of entertainment, providing food, shelter, etc. The place could create situations where the people of all ages can interact. This develops a strong sense of community. The primary aim is to keep the structure simple and functional at the same time deployable which should last a minimum period of one year under external conditions of Portland/Barcelona. This installation could add character to the neighborhood. Creating interesting solution of soup kitchen will help the less privileged and thereby it could change Portland’s “cultural and social” image about the city.

One response to “PURPOSE – TRANSPARENT INTERACTION

  1. The unique purpose and material affect to support i see from you writing is the age component. Social interaction is a related idea.
    What material affect supports this: visual screening, human scale calibration (*Fujimoto Wooden House).
    NOW- i would look to drawings and diagrams that investigate the differences of the material to acknowledge age differences and social interaction.
