Designing the social world

I love walking around town, and prefer areas where there are meeting places like parks and streets with no cars.
Yesterday i found these benches, made for an exhibition by master students at the Bergen National Academy of the Arts, Section for Design. The students ask if the shape of things decide how you relate to other people. I have got a nagging feeling that the correct answer is yes here.
