For ARCH152 MEET, the project developed from the idea of the third place; somewhere that people can communicate with each other outside of the ‘normal’ places that we go to on a regular basis like work or home. Also the concept that our generation and times that we are living in today are predominantly dominated by virtual human interaction was used, so that we could design a café/coffee house space that would encourage more physical interaction and communication with others. For ARCH152 INTERACT we had a choice to design a community space that served one of 3 concepts given to us; educate, perform or make/create. My project aimed to help resolve issues raised by the Netflix documentary “The social dilemma” and educate as well as bring a wide range of demographic together to tackle the problems faced in the digital world that we live in.
