MEET ME! is all about public interaction and engagement, and using the differently positioned wooden modular benches does exactly as the name suggests – encourages people to meet. Far too often, people sit no more than a few feet from each other on park benches, without even passing small talk, MEET ME! promotes communication and togetherness as people inhabit the public meeting area.
Brege’s design is a visually compelling one that demands further exploration and, with the wooden seating areas open to manipulation and configuration to create a social area of different levels, the architect’s goal of getting users to mutually interact is one that is sure to be successful.
