The design of Public Offer and Archizines bases itself around the themes of play and interaction; using team sport as a metaphor for the facilitation of social exchange. The gallery becomes a field for interactions to occur, where the viewer is encouraged to physically engage with the mostly static content in an active and tactile manner.

Seating bleachers provide a space for visitors to gather informally and provide a platform for discussion; the bleachers can be re-arranged to create diverse environments in which to host symposiums, or watch a game of netball. Flanked by two netball goals the publication tables created by SIBLING are a flexible display system where gymnastic rings suspended within the 8.75m high space encourage the users to pull down and alter their viewing experience, shelves raise up and sit in position allowing the user to stop and contemplate each publication one by one, encouraging a slow but active environment within the gallery.
