Uncivic Space

An uncomfortable exhibition exploring hostile architecture.

Our cities are finally opening up and public places are welcoming us back. But in some overlooked corners, urban design also acts to exclude — from railings against skateboarding to intimidating security guards.

This exhibition investigates these pieces of design that are purposefully uncomfortable and unwelcoming — provoking audiences to question how public are our public spaces?
