Designing People Out Of Spaces

George Bone

This project focuses on the issue of hostile architecture – a design trend in which public spaces are designed in a way which prevents interaction and use. Homeless people are commonly the focus of this type of design as a result of a moral panic around homelessness. I designed a short animation and a fold out A1 poster which suggests that hostile architecture is a part of a wider issue regarding the value people are perceived to have, and how this translates into the spaces we inhabit.
