/Scenario Study

Inspired by seeing how elderly use fence as a facility of exercise and relaxing, noticed fence is to identify prohibited zone and authorized zone, protecting the two regions, not only a line of isolation.


Extend the usability of connective space can allow people “take part in� and enjoy the prohibited region, also reduced conflict by reducing the collapsed area of different activities in the authorized region.
