A gendered space is a spatial metaphor that can be categorized in a variety of ways. I believe that every gender is equal and deserves a right to any public space. To me, colours are just colours, materials are just materials, and a space is a space. Therefore, this project aims to investigate how public spaces can be as a “neutral” as possible.
As expounded by Bell Hooks in “Choosing the margin as a space of radical openness”, “neutrality” or “inbetweeness” is the act of opposites coming together to exchange ideas, influence, and understand each other.
This project is therefore built to enhance the National Design Centre’s current site purpose of exchange and engagement by having a programmatically diverse installation.
