Pipes and Drains

UArts Design Charrette 2010. 3 days of  intensive designing and relaxing during the charette, based around human virtues and the elements. Designing was mixed in with scheduled meditation, yoga and eating time which created a great feeling around the department.

Our project brought together ‘earth’ and ‘consideration’. After walking around the city, we realised that there was so much natural space in Philadelphia that goes unnoticed -so decided to create a way for people to not only be aware of this, but to be guided to the space and reconsider how incredible it is to have these spaces in the city. In other words, ‘natures business card’.

We did this by designing laser cut leaves with an address of a closeby park and we have left them around the city for people to find and interpret as they wish.
