Urban Orientation: facilitating emerging inner-city neighbourhood identity + culture
This project explore affects and ecologies in the urban realm. It asks how people use non-prescriptive urban spaces for actives that aren’t always provided for in cities. It proposes replacing a car parking lot with a flexible open space that provides an orientation point for an emerging urban neighbourhood. The intention is to keep and enhance (rather than displace) the aspects of the carpark that makes it an adaptable and valuable urban space. It supports the evolution of a unique community identity based on how locals use and socialise in the public space.
