An incomplete telephone box 02 / Spare urban space redesign

An incomplete telephone box 02
An incomplete telephone box 02

This an extendible project for people to think, debate and reflect about re-using this British culture icon, a telephone box. Each idea reflects a social issue or a sort of human behaviour.

It is believed that nowadays most people do not have to use public telephone when they need to say something or to communicate something, which is the major reason for people to use telephone boxes. They use mobile phones now.

If the iconic function could be transformed into a teller, which means people use it to listen, not to talk, what will happen? For instance, a fortune teller or a short audio book teller. Will it change the declining situation now?
