Jury feedback summary
Largely a favourite among the jurors, “Re-Unite" proposes a flexible, customisable structure inspired by scaffolding. It consists of triangular and square prototypes that can be wrapped in translucent fabric and expanded according to the needs and number of participants. The jury praised the proposal for the intelligence of its simple modularity and its sensitivity to both connectivity and separation. The jury writes, “The translucent fabric lets the silhouette be seen by the observer as a continuous curtain, but remains independent, separated by the vertical frames. Bodies are free to move while experiencing distancing. The strength of the project lies in the agglomeration of the individual, solitary units that generate collective forms, united by a shared interest of activity. It is a proposal that establishes references to the Occupy movement and informal/temporary settlements through the choice of materials, construction techniques, and collective use. The visualization is quite enticing in the way it occupies urban space while maintaining a grade of individualism.” The jury also commented that while the modular elements are simplistic and straightforward, they lack a layer of specificity that relates to techno music's audio-visual aspects.
