Can we bring back nature to our urban environments? 

What if we foster public spaces so that people can meet and make a difference with their presence?

Is it possible to construct open systems and networks of public spaces, each with different and singular character?

Theatre poster designs – colorful invitations to a night of entertainment as a real social activity in public spaces.

You’ve just booked a ticket to see a new play in a theatre. What inspired you to do so? On many occasions, it’s because the show’s poster has caught your eye in the walls, buses and other urban environments or in digital media.
