Public Space Is More Important than Social Media

Borrowing the words of New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman who wrote that "public space is more important than social media" when discussing this summer's turmoil in Taksim Square, we hope to highlight the huge potential that lies in designing interactive interventions for public spaces.
Numerous projects around the world have been exploring the potential of playful and surprising interventions to re-enchant urban settings and invite people to re-connect with each other and their surroundings. Classic interaction design strategies, when applied to physical space, can help bring magic in everyday behaviours and places, and ignite in people a sense that together we can achieve more than alone.
From lessons learned as principals of the Montreal based design studio Daily tous les jours, we will present research in designing collective experiences that can spark conversation between strangers in public spaces and ultimately create new rituals for communities.
