Gottingen Street Planters
The North End Business Association collaborated with four design firms to create public seating, for community interaction along Gottingen Street in Halifax’s north end. FBM and RadStorm, an art collective located on Gottingen Street, partnered to design simple, elegant slat seating that supports formal and informal activities around the collective’s headquarters. Investigations of the daily rhythms of the sidewalk informed the approach. Accessible seats and tables facilitate engagement between artists and the public year-round. The wood was screen printed by InkStorm Screen Printing Collective bringing the community’s stories to the built environment.
