Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 draws inspiration from the mercados of Latin America, lively street markets where people connect with others in their communities every day.
The designers wanted to bring that same sense of community to this installation — encouraging everyone to come together and have engaging interactions with one another. The vibrantly red frames were molded to look like small, red homes or “casas”; each featuring a porch swing and a border of lights lining the base of the frame. The lights release a radiant glow when someone’s home and dim when the house is empty to welcome the next visitor, creating a warm, inviting space for all to enjoy.
