Pseudonym - Closed to be Open

Pseudonym - Closed to be Open

Design It Shelter Competition
Description
Designed by Mette Bos From: Amsterdam, Netherlands Shelter location: Netherlands Date Accepted: August 31, 2009 In contemporary society the borders between public and private are diffuse. A pseudonym can be a tool to fulfill the need to shelter one’s real identity while at the same time express one’s self to the public. This shelter in the urban environment of the Cultural Parc Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam embodies the pseudonym; it is closed while working, thinking and sleeping; it turns open, a pure showcase, when exposing.
