design thinking initiatives for a better urban life
it’s time to recap our last weeks work!
first of all, this is an updated diagram of our intervention strategy:
here it’s possible to find the same concepts explained in our last post weekly update with new entries and a new set-up.
in particular, after the interviews and the void mapping and selection, here we present the first idea for the LAYER O focused on Santa Maria La Palma’s Consorzio Agrario:
After our last step (shown in this post: http://networkedurbanism.com/posts/searching-the-void/), here we introduce our work update.
In the diagram you can see the general concept of our idea and the strategy developed to reach our aim. We started looking for the voids inside the Nurra territory and we found them, especially memory and social voids. We made a selection, finding the ones with a big potential (one for each hamlet): there, we’ll try to reactivate them as public spaces. In the diagram you can see the stakeholders involved, starting from the community as the first “actor” of the process. In order to attract communities in these abandoned places, we’ll make them a simple answer: “what do you want for that? what could it become?”; our input is a simple design project, called “layer 0”, where could be possible to overlap 50 different solutions of public spaces but studied for that particular place. The shock will be given by a performance of mapping projection, where people will be encouraged to give their first feedback about their thoughts relating to that void.
In the “Nurra Tour” we have been affected whit the isolated episods;
little execptions in the low density territory but in the same time as the common denominators, the landmaks that suffer from a loss of memory, functions and productive life.
