Attachments

Project: Parsons School of Design Capstone
Role:  Research, Sketching, Strategy, Modelling, Prototyping
Duration: 3 Months
Honors: Permanent installation in the Parsons School of Design shared space facilities at 2 W. 13th Street, New York, NY 

Too often, our workplaces are designed for sedentary solitude. A lack of mental and physical stimulation decreases worker productivity, and a lack of social stimulation impairs teamwork potential.

Attachments is a design proposal to intervene in this landscape—a system of wall-mounted objects that visually and physically vitalize their environment. Angled seats offer active, engaged rest. Vibrant colors elegantly pop behind patterned perforations that enhance user experience. Rigorously tested heights and scales accommodate many body types, and a slim 12” profile maintains a non-intrusive impact.

Case Study Overview:
New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA)

NYCHA is an enormous government body serving over 600,000 NYC residents. Its offices are sterile and highly bureaucratic. As a government agency, its budget is limited and space is tight.
