Public Space Design

MA DESIGN - June 2013
UP. HERE. NOW - The Work Shop
We don't think you need another solipsistic product. You already have a great deal of them. We think you want us to address issues begging for improvement. Here and now. We are looking for opportunities and urgencies that you may have. We'd love to assist you in connecting public causes with personal engagement. We can express the cultural symbolism of consumption, and help you appreciate its workings. We can support you in tackling the global complexities of production.
