SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION

"Violence has been in decline over long stretches of time, and we may be living in the most peaceful time in our species' existence" - Steven Pinker

The concept is developed from the relation between decline in violence with the increase in inter-human connection. The concept is narrowed down to the urban myth of 'six degrees of separation", a structure that connects us all.

This is a hypothesis explaining that in a world of over 7 billion people, everyone is connected and is only six or less steps away from anyone else around the globe.

"The world is more highly, more globally, more connected than we ever thought" - Steven Henry Strogatz


Project : Urban Youth Center in Maldives 

 An effective youth center would act as a contrivance against crime and substance abuse during the vulnerable years of self-development and subsequently will assist individuals to attain their identity in the social structure.
