The bench is yours II
Starting with an archetypal chair form, waste and found wood is added on to the bench following the archetype of a basic chair, needing legs, seat and back. Any one can add to the bench with the waste wood. It is a democratic project that cannot be designed in advance. We create the base, there after it is up to the people that use the park to continue where the last person stopped.
