“The Wall” is normally a structural element that is used to divide or enclose. It is a fundamental architectural component that is typically used to divide space into inside and outside; and in building construction, the wall defines the boundary of a space – whereby it is often associated with the limitation of human activity.
By experimenting with this element, and creating a new form of ‘The Wall’, that instead of limiting, becomes a necessary element for connection, our proposal is designed as a paradox. We want to re-create this spatial boundary into a spatial media for interaction; and transform the Wall from a separation tool into a social connector. Ultimately, we hope to use the Wall to find a way to encourage people to mingle more; to not only meet and greet, but also to interact and connect. We want to ‘break down’ the boundary.
