The project will be installed in the Pulitzer courtyard for the duration of MD / STL.
The piece of Fern-iture is compartmentalized into 8 components – each of the six seating sides of the hexagon can be removed from the central planter, which can be separated into two halves. This allows for two individuals to disassemble the project within minutes, transport, and reassemble the project in a new location with little effort. The hexagonal shape optimizes seating variations to create more social or more isolated experiences, based on each person’s desire. The more pieces of Fern-iture that exist in a space, the greater the impact and potential for accumulation and organization of various spatial strategies.
While the project is not a solution to climate change, it can begin a dialogue on approaching issues of rapid urbanization and ecological instability.
