SPACE FOR LOST TIME
A Room for Lost Time
An average person spends two years of her life waiting. What could we do if we could harness this time? A Room for Lost Time is an experimental place for regaining part of the lost time of our lives. It is a social aggregation, a micro-hub for culture and a place to ponder about being and the passage of time.
A Social Platform
Neighbours spontaneously gather in bus stops. But bus stops are not designed for them to interact, rather they are socially awkward places. is projects pretends to create a welcoming space where neighbours with similar concerns and with time at their disposal can make spontaneous or arranged meetings to discuss their common problems. They can gather around a replace or in a small auditorium for up to 16 persons.
A Culture Hub
Bus stops are underutilized infrastructures. They are occupied mostly at rush hours while the rest of the day they remain empty. e project takes advantage of the potential of these structures conceiving them as culture hubs rather than as waiting spaces. By providing a simple space that can work both as a library and a micro performance hall, the project opens up the possibility of people using this space as a cultural venue.
A Space for Being
One of the fundamental experiences of contemporary life is that of haste. We live preoccupied on what is to come. is project makes room for a different experience of time; not of waiting for the future but of enjoying the present: gathering around a small re to warm oneself; looking at how the sun crosses the sky draw shadows in the door; just being, silence and light.
