Laneways by George - The Meeting Place

The Meeting Place is a playful installation which encourages participation and interaction whilst heightening the experience of moving through the urban space of Little Hunter Street. The four metre high fabric walls sit within the laneway, compressing the pedestrian path and framing a sliver of sky that accentuates the unique space of the lane.

People negotiate their way through the laneway through communication and contact with other people moving in the opposite direction. This social aspect of watching, communicating and negotiating with people will increase positive human contact with a sense of play.

Great concept. Interacting art. Reminds me of the Guggenheim in Bilbao.

Cool. In Sydney that would work.

Ha! I bet there's a lot of polite "after you"s and nervous giggles with this.
