[一席之地] 中国广州社区椅子创生计划是一个独立公共社区调研工作坊。计划由时代中国旗下Or（Original relationship）品牌（以下简称Or）、复苏实验室、新南社会发展中心联合发起，特邀广州美术学院建筑艺术设计学院学术支持， C.G.B乘果创意集团协办。参与者在学术主持的辅导下，深入各类城市空间，以广州新老社区摆放的遗弃公共座椅为样本，制定出公共座椅社区分布地图。参与者通过问卷、影像记录、故事采集等方式，发现人与人、与社区、与城市相互交融的生活状态，项目旨在通过探究“公共座椅”深入各类城市空间的现象，发现人与人、人与社区、人与城市空间的关联，传达Or对居住空间的深度思考，并持续激发人们去探索新型城市人居方式的更多可能；并透过这些与人们生活相融的“椅子”背后所凝结的人际关系与公共生活，启发人们对“自我”、“家”、“社区”三者微妙关系的思考,探索出一条将艺术、设计和城市调研相结合的研究之路。
[CHAIR-SCAPE] A PRODUCTIVE URBAN PROGRAMME is an independent public community research workshop. The plan was jointly initiated by Or（Original relationship）， the WAKE MEDIA LAB and the New Austral institute, with academic support from the School of Architecture&Applied Art of Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, and executive support from CGB creative group of brand & su:Design. Under the guidance of academic auspices, participants went deep into various urban spaces and used abandoned public seats placed in old and new communities in Guangzhou as samples to develop a community distribution map of public seats. Through questionnaires, video recording, story collection, etc., participants discovered the living conditions of people with each other, also people with communities and the city. The project aims to explore the phenomenon of "public seats" in various urban spaces in order to discover the connection between people, people and communities, also people and urban space. It conveys Or Brand's deep thinking about living space, and continues to inspire people to explore more possibilities for new urban habitats; Through the human relations and public life that condensed behind these "chairs" that blend with people's lives, inspire people to think about the subtle relationships between "self", "home" and "community", and explore a new avenue of study that combines art, design and urban investigation.
Problem Statement and Project Solution
Problem Statement :
Who discarded the abandoned seats placed in the old and new communities in Guangzhou? Who moved them there? Why are they needed? What are the stories associated with these chairs? Why are there unplanned public areas in the community? Can our actions make more people pay attention to our public community? Can we intervene to make the community more reasonable planning and make the community better?
Through exploring the phenomenon of "public seating" in various urban spaces, discovering the connection between people, people and communities, also people and urban space, thinking about residential space, and continuing to inspire people to explore more possibilities for new urban habitats, Through the human relations and public life that condensed behind these "chairs" that blend with people's lives, it inspires people to think about the subtle relationships between "self", "home" and "community", and explore a new avenue of study that combines art, design and urban investigation
创作过程 & 结果呈现
Creative Process & Result
Creative process: Originating designer Su Min under a white wall in Haizhu Jiaogongxin Village (East of South Campus of Sun Yat-sen University), Xiadu Road, Haizhu District, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, spent several years recording the story of abandoned chairs here.
[CHAIR-SCAPE A PRODUCTIVE URBAN PROGRAMME, Guangzhou, China] was jointly initiated by Or Brand，the WAKE MEDIA LAB and the New Austral institute. Dozens of workshop partners were recruited. Under the full guidance of the project leader, the workshop partners learned a series of participatory observations, interviews, ethnographic research methods and preliminary training in research ethics from anthropological research. We were doing that to understand the humanistic value orientation behind these research methods, to train our ability to have equal communication with diversified cultures, to build understanding based on empathy, and to get professional support to develop our own artistic and design creative capacity. Three people make a group, went to the sample communities, to understand objects themselves through a real scene, deeply explore the different phenomena and relationships in the community, to break the inherent cognition,and then to return to the original imagination of the objects. From the observation and analysis of daily life, lead to reflect and deconstruct self-perception eventually.
Results: Three typical communities in Guangzhou were selected: Huangbian (urban boundary),Yuancun (the largest typical urban village in Guangzhou),The surrounding communities on Wende Road and Wenming Road (the representative old city in Guangzhou) take old chairs placed on the street in public areas as samples, collected through text, photos, images, audio recordings, oral stories, questionnaires, video recordings, and stories collection to develop a distribution map of used seats.

How does the project reflect to the exhibition theme "Cultural Bay Area • Humanistic Design"
Good creation-1: Attention and humanistic care for current issues, 2: Reflecting contemporary human culture and survival dilemma, 3: Forward-looking and experimental unique expression, 4: Inspiring group thinking and resonance.....
[CHAIR-SCAPE A PRODUCTIVE URBAN PROGRAMME, Guangzhou, China] through the collection of seats and the diverse forms of community life, sees what kind of civil and social relationships are condensed behind the "seats", to also reflects what kind of public life in the city, thereby inspiring people to think on the subtle relationships between "self", "home" and "community".
It is hoped that through the interpersonal relationships and public life condensed behind these "chairs" that blend in with people's lives, more people and institutions in the Bay Area will be inspired to consider the relationships between "self", "home" and "community" , exploring a study road that combines art, design and urban research, and together building a more beautiful Cultural Bay Area through humanistic design.
