the Roc / public playground

the Roc
the Roc

The Roc consists of a system of interactive chairs in an outdoor area which enables teenagers to socialise with their friends in a space that truly belongs to them, as compared to children’s playgrounds. Roc encourages emergent play with various degrees of interaction, depending on the level of activity users interact with these agents. The Roc reflects various personalities and moods through the different approaches that the user interacts with the agent and also changes the ambience collectively in this process.
