Public! Porous! Testing Democratic Public Space by Boundaries

Architectural Association DIP 5 2020/2021
Gabu Heindl and Bostjan Vuga

After teaching DIP 17 in the year 2019/2020, Gabu Heindl teaches this year’s AA Diploma Unit 5: ‘Porous! Public! Democratic Public Space by Boundaries’ together with Boštjan Vuga.

DIP5 focuses on design interventions that respond to the burning issues of public interest in our contemporary environment. It interrogates connections between spatial and socio-political categories, drawing from the hypothesis that porosity is a link and a method to contest and establish different boundaries.
