Public Space Workshop

Directors: Jennifer Broutin, Kamal Farah

As a collaborative model for trans-disciplinary research and development, the Workshop has evolved as a rapid response to investigating the future of public space in cities.

Operating outside traditional organizational boundaries, the Workshop is at once the method and outcome, emphasizing diversity, exchange, and innovation.

An agile incubator, the Workshop assembles experts for a limited duration focused on a single issue. Collaborators contribute proposals in an effort to uncover emergent issues and activate participation.

With each iteration, the Workshop expands globally in scope and scale. The outcome of which is a networked resource of collaborators for continued feedback.
