Love Island City

Love Island City speculates on how public spaces can be improved in rapidly growing cities, to cater to the predominant demographic of young, single millennials in Long Island City, NY. It re-imagines public space to enable encounters and potential dates. Underused spaces around frequently visited social and everyday nodes are identified for interventions. Various levels of intimacy are achieved in these spaces by introducing a series of urban objects that trigger or reinforce social interactions. The result is a dérive through spots carved into the existing city fabric that creates opportunities for encounters and moments that one may experience with someone else in the hustle of everyday life.
