Urban Coral / Concept of public space

Urban Coral
Urban Coral

Fence is a widely-used structure element in cities. For example, metal fence is always directly used in the construction site. Due to the fact that the construction period is generally long, passengers usually have no choice but to pass through the passages created after fences are built. Therefore, the study proposed a multi-function fence module, which provides blocking function and other different things, such as seats, illumination, greening and walls for people to lean against. Let people happily shuttle among our urban coral like a clown fish.
