barcelona-based design group in-tenta have developed ‘all-in-square’ – a new design idea made up of micro-architecture,
modular urban furniture and external floor covering for public urban spaces and contemporary users. implemented as a
temporary shop as well as information point, it is composed of two basic elements: a square structure and a perforated metal
cover which surface can be customized with different cutting patterns and corporate logos.

 

the enclosure can be used as a tunnel to create a sheltered outdoor space or cover totally the square structure.
the trapezoidal-shaped pieces can be combined in multiple ways according to different use needs and open air activities
related with leisure, the use of technological devices and social relationships in public spaces. a wireless hotspot provides
internet access to promote new designs for the public landscape. thin photovoltaic solar films are located on the roof
supplying energy to the concept.
