Bill FitzGibbons is a San-Antonio based artist who is inherently hooked by 'social sculptures'. Joseph Beuys, an influential german artist, coined the term 'social sculpture' defined as 'an artwork situated in the public domain that requires the engagement and intervention of an audience for completion'. The above images from LightRails (2013) and Light Channels (2007) show how an originally dark and solemn tunnel can be transformed into an inviting space where people are intrigued. The aim off these two projects was to enhance the flow of pedestrians, encouraging them into different areas. 

Could this be used in Crimes Against Design? Enhance the flow of people using that tunnel while bringing attention to the low head ceiling? Highlighting how low the ceiling is?
