Inspired by the temporary structures created during the Gezi Park protests in Istanbul 2013.
Three aluminium stands come together to form a seated space where group dialogue and debate can be easily facilitated. Facing outwards, the structures become raised podiums where a single person steps up onto a platform and is elevated providing a rare opportunity for public speaking. The conversation and discussion that happens inwards can then be vocalised outwards.
