The Camden Lid

Chuan Liu (CN)

A social experiment. The author reshaped the Camden Bench, a hostile architecture based in London, with cardboard. By chosing a place for the homeless, the author hopes to arouse the audience’s thinking about the design ethics of public facilities and encourage the re-creation of public space.
