Appreciation towards The Urban Conga for providing the following description:

来自布鲁克林的工作室The Urban Conga通过一系列互动装置探讨了“可玩城市”的概念:在既有的城市基础设施中置入一个“可玩”的生态系统,使其完全融入我们的日常生活。

A Brooklyn-Based Design Studio is Selected as a Winner of Architizer’s A+Firm Awards for their Work which Explores the Idea of a “Playable City” as an Ecosystem of Playable Opportunities Intertwined within the Existing Urban Infrastructure that Doesn’t just Disrupt our Daily Lives but Adds to it.

项目01:振动
Project 01: Oscillation

这是一个专注于视觉、声音和运动的互动装置,当你走向它时,它会根据你们之间的距离发出不同的声音和音调。当你在其周围移动或舞蹈时,装置的颜色也会根据身体的角度和位置反射出倒影或发出变化的光线。这是一个模块化的作品,可以被移动到世界各地,并激活当地未被充分利用的空间。

Oscillation is an interactive installation that focuses on using sight, sound, and movement to spark spontaneous social interaction and conversation within a once underutilized space. As you walk toward the piece, it plays different sounds and pitches depending on your distance to it. As you move and dance around the piece, colors reflect and refract light differently based on your angle and position to the work. The work becomes an open-ended invitation for people to play, dance, jam out, and come together as a community in public space. The piece was designed as modular pieces so the work can travel and activate new and unique underutilized spaces around the world.

项目02:聚集地
Project 02: The Hangout

该装置由一系列圆柱体组成,为社区带来休息和聚会的空间。设计利用触摸传感技术,将每个圆柱体转变为可演奏的乐器。圆柱顶部被触摸时会发出声音,夜间还会发出不同色彩的光线。社区里的居民们可以按照自己的意愿来操控并利用这个空间,从而将一个曾经未被充分利用的地段改造为充满灵感又具包容性的社区聚集地。

The Hangout uses sight, sound, and touch to transform a once underutilized lot into an inclusive, safe, and inspiring space for the community. The space consists of a series of clusters of cylinders that offer seating and a space to gather. The design utilizes touch sensor technology that transforms each cylinder into a playable, musical instrument. When the user touches the tops of the cylinders, a sound is made. At night, each of the units illuminates and changes colors as well when touched. These components allow the community to manipulate and utilize the space as they want. A space that they could call their own and feel is a positive representation of their neighborhood.

项目03:交缠
Project 03: Entangled

这是一个具有社交属性的座椅,它为人们提供了一个坐下来交流的地点。装置中包括三个铝制的鼓,其灵感源于传统的海地鼓,它们由起伏的长椅串联在一起,为社区成员的交流提供了多样的可能性。

The social bench system provides a place for people to sit, listen, and converse on the neighborhood’s past, present, and future and its Haitian influence. This is a neighborhood that is being drastically changed. With this project, they wanted to create an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the culture that exists within the neighborhood and is being pushed out. The intervention is made up of three aluminum drums formed from the traditional Rada Battery Haitian drums. The drums are connected by an undulating bench system that allows a multitude of social seating possibilities.

项目04:变化的图腾
Project 04: Shifting Totems

该装置由三个铝制的图腾构成,犹如从地面冒出的树干。每个图腾都可以通过旋转而拼接出不同的词汇,例如“强大”、“知识”“投票”和“骄傲”等等。图腾柱的宽阔底座可以当成座位使用。这是一个动态的作品,它吸引着路过的人们汇聚于此、相互倾谈。

The piece is made up of three aluminum totems that resemble tree trunks emerging from the ground. Each totem has a series of units that can be rotated to spell out different words like strong, knowledge, go vote, pride, and many more. At the base of each totem is a larger section for people to sit and converse about the neighborhood’s past, present, and future. The piece was designed not to be a static piece that one just walks by but a catalyst for a larger conversation about the area’s misrepresentation.

项目05:能玩就不坐着
Project 05: Why sit when you can play? 

这是一个乐器般的座椅系统,旨在提供一个开放可玩的平台,为平平无奇的公园长椅注入新的活力。长椅的独特形态是根据其所在的环境而定制的,流动的形态鼓励人们在各种层次上进行互动。长椅的音乐部分包含两个八度的音符,“琴键”由实心铝条制成,可以用附带的木锤来演奏。

“Why sit when you can play?” is a musical public park bench system designed to begin to bring the everyday park bench back to life by providing an open-ended playable platform within the built environment. The benches’ unique forms are custom created based on the specific space in which they reside. The flowing organic form is designed to encourage different levels of seating interactions, from a romantic couple to a large jam session. The benches’ musical sections each contain two octaves of musical notes. The notes are made from solid aluminum bars that are cut individually to resonate a specific note. The musical notes can either be played with attached mallets.
