Upcycled Urbanism: Surprise and Juxtaposition in the Public Realm – Mar 24
March 21, 2013
From the Museum of Vancouver: The fourth workshop in MOV’s Upcycled Urbanism series:
Surprise and Juxtaposition in the Public Realm
2:00PM – 4:00PM
@ MOV (1100 Chestnut St)
Upcycled Urbanism is a participatory design project that empowers you to reimagine Vancouver’s public spaces. Design and build prototypes in a team environment using modular blocks of polystyrene containing material salvaged from the construction of the Port Mann Bridge.
Design forms and images seem to reappear through life–whether in architecture, nature, or even in the food we eat. How can forms from seemingly disparate realms provide inspiration for imaginative public space interventions that draw people together, hold them, and perhaps even change them?
We’ll use this workshop’s ideas as the basis for our spectacular public space intervention this July, when we will use giant blocks of polystyrene to turn vision into reality.
No need to have a design background, just bring your creative and curious mind!
