New types of contact exceed physical boundaries. Neither the relation between the public and private nor the transitional area in between is unambiguously manifest. Oddly enough, the elements that make up this boundary have hardly been cultivated. We studied the conceptual possibilities of this boundary and listed them in a catalogue of doors (boundaries between private and public) and fences (boundaries between private and private). The pursuit of forced social interaction between people was not an objective here. A meaningful experience of the boundary, however, was. The project resulted in a number of prototypes, such as a fence that may also be used as a Ping-Pong table and a fence in which holes are punched, shaped like articles one may share with one’s neighbours.
