Everyday people from stigmatized subcultures (in this case graffiti artists, skateboarders, bmxers, rollerbladers, etc.) are excluded from public spaces. This project seeks a spatial justice for these social groups by creating public space that is in fact public, uninhibited by the processes of inclusion and exclusion that plague nearly every public space.
More important than achieving spatial justice, however, is creating a societal awareness of the positive attributes of these subcultures. After all, it is society that has control over how public spaces are allocated. Therefore, this project first and foremost focuses on the interaction of this building with the general public.
