Say hello to your shortlist for The Social Space 2017 – celebrating design that imaginatively brings people together. These are impressive spaces where we interact and play. But what about these projects makes them ‘social’?
8 July, 2017
“Social design” is one of those vague terms that could be appropriated to mean almost anything. Hospitality project? Social design. New retail store? Social design. Agile workplace? Yes, technically it’s social design, too. So what is it about these seemingly disparate, varied sector projects that unite them under the “social” banner?
This is something we asked ourselves in great detail when creating the INDE.Awards Social Space category – and after much research and discussion, here’s what we discovered…
The Social Space is characterised by design that imaginatively brings people together. These are impressive spaces where we interact, play – even work. It’s a design that is purpose-built to encourage people to collide and interact with one another. It’s a design that uses the principles of typical human behaviour to create strategic spaces that direct and produce social activity.
