Public Space Workshop 2010: Comfort

Directors: Jennifer Broutin, Kamal Farah

The 2010 session of the workshop focuses on Comfort. As a precondition for public space, Comfort is necessary to provide an environment in which assembly and exchange may occur. The determinants of Comfort vary from location to location with each population measuring its perfor- mance. With physical, virtual, sensorial and emotional attributes, Comfort has the ability to be transmitted through different mediums and at varying scales. It is delicate, illusive, and necessary.
