THE SQUARE (2013)

Temporary outdoor installation in Bernhöftstorfa square, a deserted corner of Reykjavík downtown.

Design team:
Friðrik Steinn Friðriksson, experience designer,
Laufey Jónsdóttir, fashion designer and illustrator,
Sigurður Arent Jónsson, artist.

This project was a part of the "Torg í Biðstöðu" (“Meanwhile projects”) that is a program run by the City of Reykjavik. Through the program, the city assigned areas that have been sidelined in the planning process to artists and designers to create temporary works, test and play with the current and future of the cityscape.
