Bolarbolitos started as an urban intervention in the city of Bogotá in 2012 as part of a Place Making event around the city of Bogotá called 100in1day.
The design of this urban furniture mixed with my interest for human – nature interactions and technology at human scale, let me discovered new approches to the public space where citizens from different cultures can access to public infrastructure and services.
Cities needs to adapt to the new public spaces interactions, climate change and mobility are very important subjects to have into count. That means to create new systems and “touch points” that dialogues with citizens.
Improve the quality of urban space is possible thanks to the mix between urban furniture and technology. There exist a wide range of problematics in urban spaces such as mobility, air quality, urban heating, night live but also entertainment, culture and sports. Those could be improved thanks to the implementation of new technologies who dialogues with art, urban planing, architecture and design.
So, why not offer new ways of interaction in public spaces? could the interaction between people and urban furniture helps to create safer places in the city?
Thanks to all the people who has joined in this project in Bogotá.
