The City staged its concurrent ‘Everyone is King’ Design Build Competition to create streetscape-animating curb-lane parklets along the 2.5-mile Transit Pilot stretch of King. Face to Face / Tête à Tête, one of the winning parklet designs, transforms a couple of curb-lane parking spots into a concentrated conversation zone.

Into the Forest – Mantova, Italy – Openfabric
“Fallen Forest” is a memorial for the millions of trees victims of the cyclone that hit the North-Eastern regions of Italy on November 2nd, 2018. The installation confronts the phenomena of climate tropicalisation and its catastrophic effects on the environment, by recreating a portion of post-apocalyptic landscape (using leftovers trunks of paper production-chain). Climate change is real, action is urgent.
