What are the benches facing at? 

IMG_4110

We have learned in class that people like to sit where there are other people around. I found interesting that in the park in front of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, all the benches are facing different directions. In some places it even looks like they have been purposely set to be facing in a direction from which you can’t see other benches. And not being able to see other benches from where you are sitting, returns to not being able to see other people from there. I think this might negatively impact the attractiveness of the park. And indeed, even though I went there during the week end, the park was totally empty.
