About

Pablo Rodriguez Garcia in an NHS t-shirt

Hi, my name is Pablo Rodriguez Garcia. I am a Spatial Designer from Madrid, Spain. As a designer I pride myself in creating meaningful experiences and spaces that are needed or sought after. What I intend to create is a thought-provoking space which is run by the community for the community and creates a friendly façade to Dundee’s already popular riverside trail. All my designs express an element of my outgoing personality and therefore share social and communal aspects. Street design has always been a great influence in my projects as my love for nature and exteriors meets my family-centred influenced background. My upbringing in a naturally social environment has prepared me for my life as a Spatial Designer.

We humans are social beings. It is obvious this last decade has been the most de-humanising one in our entire history. We have become attached to our screens, we are used as lab rats by corporations and now we have criminalised visiting loved ones and hugging them due to Covid-19. If we follow this path, we are going to strip society and ourselves of what makes us human. I believe The Back-Bone Project is a step in the right direction. It contains several different anti-social decontamination methods. From making the use of phones less than practical (Canopy), to creating bonds between customer and company (Barter), creating a sense of community (Retail) and allowing our connections to grow and deepen (Rest). I believe in a future together and so should you.
