[dih-void] – “Empty only after something has been taken away.”
Concept: It is Port Credits ambition to give back the space that cars occupy in the public realm to create a more vibrant street scape.
What if we used a car as a device to create a space for the public?
Our team proposes creating a vehicle for social interaction by transporting a message to the public. In de-voiding the footprint of a stationary car in a parking space, we aspire to empty the public realm of an element that provides no contribution, and replace it with a learning tool that does.
