As our future mega-cities are defining themselves every day with bustling streets and soaring skyscrapers, a city still craves for many things but mostly - an identity. The 21stcentury from its onset is rapidly changing how we live and how we perceive the definitions of a city rampantly. ‘Urbanscape’ is the manifestation of the built environment of cities.
It not only refers to the configuration of built forms but also the elements that define interstitial spaces. However, what we see today is the progression of ever-increasing skyscrapers that dominate the memories of a city, overpowering smaller elements.
Built-mass may define the image of the city, but public life defines its inner workings. This competition is an endeavour to turn the tables on how urban furniture works in cities. From changing them to a mass-produced piece of utility to a more thoughtful in terms of their presence. To root them more on originality and utility, build more interesting relationships between these and the people who come in interaction with the furniture pieces.
