Swinger's Party, 2013

Swinger's Party is a pop-up intervention created as part of the course on Social Design at MICA. How might we positively impact our immediate communities? We came up with the concept of building swings as a way to activate Cohen Plaza, a green square in from of the school, and to bring play and nostalgia for the MICA community. We prototyped a swing in our classroom, then brought materials to construct the swings directly on site. The reactions we received from MICA faculty and students showed us that being outside and swinging helped bring some fun activity into their day. This project was created with Byron Banghart, Laura Brewer, Yeonoo Shin, and Alexandra Weil.
