1. CITIES worldwide are becoming increasingly IMPORTANT. They are growing and changing in a rapid speed. Therefore, the urban public space is becoming more crucial in our daily lives. We feel that the quality of PUBLIC SPACE is under pressure.
By demonstrating, with The Flying Grass Carpet, the benefits of a good public space, we want to show the importance of places where people can meet and simply enjoy themselves in the public realm. We hope to inspire city-makers and urban decision makers to create BETTER CITIES for us all.
2. The Flying Grass Carpet likes people to feel how CONNECTED we all are. We have more in common than we sometimes think. By traveling from one location to the next, The Flying Grass Carpet brings a world-wide shared experience. If you sit on The Carpet you enjoy exactly the same design as somebody for example in Rotterdam, Istanbul or Shenzhen.
