RE-CONNECT | designing with and for humanity and inclusivity: a vision for Public life in desert cities.
A city is not just defined by the planners and architects that build it, but also by the users that occupy it and the businesses who serve them. Technology has made us virtually closer to one another but more detached physically and emotionally. As any other herd of mammals, people had the natural need for a sense of belonging. Gathering has been one of the most primitive ways to develop a sense of belonging. Gathering sets the framework for the exchange of ideas and experiences with others; and originally, we used to gather in the public realm.
The challenge is to experiment with new gathering experiences in a variety of urban CIVIC scenarios, that promote social exchange, community activities and citizens interaction through the implementation of multifunctional designs, while at the same time addressing issues of equity and feeling of welcoming for everyone.
