Rethinking the ‘In-Between’

SVET VMES is continuously engaged in transformation of public exterior and interior 'in-between' areas through amplification of small collective spaces, mostly in educational context.
With this research we would like to explore the potential of the 'in-betweeness' and try to clarify how can a small, implanted collective space trigger, not only a spatial, but also a social change. How can the 'in-between' space become hierarchically dominant and is not just being merely there? How can emphasized contrast between old and new structures instantly challenge people’s day to day behaviours? Research will focus on mini architectural interventions that can instigate positive change in people's daily lives, through various bottom up projects.
