Event description

Description

Unpleasant Design is a design phenomenon that promotes social control through discomfort, pain, and persuasion. It raises the value of urban space by preventing specific use scenarios such as sleeping on a park bench or loitering in a shopping mall. In this talk, Selena Savić will show some “stars” of unpleasant design and focus on patterns in the design of public space where these silent agents replace the need for supervision and condition our behaviour.

Registration recommended.
