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.
