IaaC Introductory Studio-G1 of 201516 Active Public Space, Plaça de les Glòries

Our relationship with machines in the digitized space is usually rather inconspicuous. All sorts of devices surround and track us without us knowing that they are there. Active Public Space is a project that imagines transformation of underutilised public spaces, in this case Plaça de les Glòries in Barcelona, and speculating on its future use as a waste management and fabrication hub where different forms of human and machine actions activate this currently dormant space. This performative model does not only look at flows and the dance of various processes in that space, but also attempts to picture a different form of infrastructure that offers a different dimension of an active public space.
