MEATS was invited by the autonomous institute for critical design research Civic City, based in the Haute école d’art et de design, Genève, Switzerland, to take part in the research project Places en Relation . The students are going to study different pubic spaces in Barcelona as a new type of proximity common area. They are heading to investigate these spaces describing, measuring and feeling them in terms of social reality,pace and atmosphere, considering their potential as places in constant connection, interaction and networking.

After presenting the first phase of the research in the beginning of October in Genève, now the students are challenged to prepare the exhibition of the first results of their work in late January in the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, France.
