Beyond architectural programming and representation

Gitte Juul

Interventions in public space can make intangible boundaries, limitations and paradoxes visible in different situations and disturb their hierarchies. Intangible boundaries seem to be located not only in physical arrangement, but also in peoples thinking, which support the hierarchies of society. When the boundaries are blurred it is not longer clear what the limits are and what is accepted. Then people need to have a dialogue.
The interventions can indicate a path forward more than it can provide a proven recipe for a future society. This path walks through a collective learning process, aiming at empowering citizens and creating an awareness of our common responsibility for the development of society.
