“Bench-bombing” by Meghan Talarowski et al (2013)




This group of bench-bombers put temporary benches in parks and brought people together. The articles describing the project quoted William H. Whyte, a famous urbanist and public space advocate, who observed that “people like to sit where there are places for them to sit.”

“We need to start a movement of sitting, of conversation and of hanging out. We really can bring people together, and it starts with something as simple as a bench.”
