Collective Section

Folly/ Function Competion Submission
Socrates Sculpture Park 

The Collective Section is a physical tool designed to facilitate and challenge the social interplay within Socrates Sculpture Park’s community. In isolation, each section operates will limited utility: A stool and a perch to pause and view the surroundings. But when operated as collection, each section has the potential to support and build on the function of its counterparts. Individual perches come together to form tables for community meals, intimate surfaces for chess matches, lounges to stare up into the sky, rows to watch outdoor movies, and counters to exchange information and goods. Any new arrangement of sections opens up a novel vehicle for social interplay. And when the users leave the sections behind, a span of social interactions lay traced across the landscape.
