Emilie is one of the few students who are exhibiting at New Designers. Here are some images of her work.
My project is concerned with the extraordinary rise in social networking and hospitality sites, which allow people to travel the world by staying in other people’s homes. Affordable travel enables us to work and live anywhere in the world given the opportunity.
This project explores how to create social cohesion in temporary situations, by engaging with notions of hospitality. How can we prepare our homes for a stranger coming to stay, and can this be acceptable to everyone? The project is about how you can adapt the home to become a temporary public space, by providing a service that delivers the means to transform a home into a temporary hotel.
