How well do human share the planet with other species?
How could our cities accommodate not just for human needs but also for other beings’ needs?
Human-planet Public Objects is a research design project which looks into our extremely close yet incredibly far relationship between human and other species within our urban landscape. The project reflects on the conventional way of user-centric design approach, which is human focused and may not be a sustainable approach in long run due to rapid urbanization and climate change.
By focusing on the scale of street objects in the city, we reveal the juxtaposition of the original design intention for human use and the accidental accommodation by other beings. Thus, we hope to bring reflections and imaginations on a Human-planet design which can cater all beings.
