Design for London
A proposal for Design For London to build a series of micro-sites to demonstrate how the Great Spaces Initiative would transform public spaces around London and the effect this would have on the local communities.
The Peoples’ Places sites offered a way of collecting together the thoughts, feelings and comments from local businesses and the community about the redevelopment of their open spaces. Our prototype (the Windrush Square website) allowed users to move around the interactive map of the site and explore the space through other peoples’ experiences. Videos and sound clips, and pictures of the local community, created by Voist, detailed different reactions to the changes and how the new space has affected local life.
Design ideas and findings from this project were later used in the first stages of the Mapify project.
