During the course. we have been focusing on the areas of Kv. Spårvägen and Östervarn/Kirseberg, to explore together with local inhabitants, civil servants, NGOs, companies and other actors questions of: citizens involvement and waste minimization; and collaborative efforts in the planning and development of a former industrial area. On the last day of the course we would like to engage you in a Design Thing around some of the insights we gain along the way.
Camila Mahzouni, Manuel Siegel, Szymon Sulka, Kamila Wnorowska, and Hyejoo Yoo looked at what public spaces are, how participation within these spaces works, and, crucially, what citizens expect them to be like. As a result of their project, the co-design students created a participatory platform and redesigned Malmö’s parking lots with it, concluding that public spaces can be turned into whatever they need to be.
During this weekend 45 students from K3 design programmes had a 3-day art/design workshop, Incredible Interactive Art Adventure. The theme of the workshop was “This body augmentation is probably a bad idea”.
