Designated Properties

space of violence

Under Public Defense, this work examines the way in which defensive design and hostile architecture is implemented into public spaces.

Violence disguises itself in streetlights, bicycle racks, and benches. It’s a silent statement that dictates who is allowed and who isn’t. It manipulates and displaces the people who frequent these public spaces. How is a space really meant for the public if others gets to define what that means and what that looks like?
