Case Description

C’entro (from the Italian ‘I’m in, ‘I’m involved’) is a modular frame made of colorful fiberglass rods that would snap together to form a circle on the ground for up to two people to sit inside. The SBGA Blengini Ghirardelli studio designed it with the intention to enable people to gather in a safe way. Besides defining the area for a maximum of two people to gather, C’entro includes also a spacer of 1,5 meters connected to the circle, indicating the appropriate space between different circles. The system is designed to be folded and can be carried along in a small bag, for quick and easy use.

Relation to Resilience

C’entro aspires to let people gather safely in a creative and playful way. The modular frame allows its users to define their own space outdoor, giving them the opportunity to temporarily appropriate a part of public space.
