Matriarchal Invention

Speculative design / illustration

As part of my thesis experimentation, I chose everyday objects as the lens to project the future.

I picked several public facilities in Mission Creek Park in San Francisco. The matriarchal quality I infused into them is 'collaboration.'

Imagine in this park, every facility is designed to encourage collaboration. Seesaw benches that you can only enjoy the view with another person sitting with you; bike lamps that your labor will supply the electricity for the community.

How would you react, and what would you be?
Do you like this new world?
