Off the Grid: Interactive Fence


Events like these are perfect for architects and designers to contribute to society thru design. They are usually tasked to do jobs that are very profit oriented, and thru activities and competitions like this, it provides a breather for them to do something that has social impact. We had a project where we encouraged under privileged kids to do a mural for rather dull walls. We provided all the materials, and food for them and they event went home with some giveaways from us. It did serve us well, too, when our place looked more vibrant, but what was important is that they enjoyed it and expressed themselves thru art.
