Bright Tape Promoting Social Distancing Transforms Public Architecture in Singapore

I stumbled across this article on Colossal about an almost-unintentional public intervention project. In Singapore, bright tape has been laid on public surfaces (floors, chairs, benches, etc.) to make it easier to visualize how far apart people should be when social distancing. However, as the article points out, these pieces of tape can themselves be seen as contributing to the architectural design of spaces. Both from an aesthetic and functional perspective, the tape adds a new flair that can re-shape or utterly transform the original intention of the architect or designer. Great inspiration for the ongoing Public Intervention group project!
