Be Public

​​​​Corruption and unjust socio-political practice triggers us into the creation of public installations used as pedagogical tools to engage city dwellers with designers. The installations are body-sized creations that have a very short life span, straddling the realm between happenings and architecture. They have had rippling effects that last, or simply fade.

Our work, with simple gestures and timely interventions offers different perspectives that instigate debates and question socio-political measures. We aim to host, to challenge, to improve, to engage, and to question the city, reacting to events as they take place.

More about BePublic installations can be found on Domus and #AUBNews.​
