A10 Documentary Edit

And the mammoth task of editing our A10 documentary has begun. Over the past year we have met lots of great people doing amazing things along the edges of this Amsterdam motorway, we were lucky to be allowed to film these stories and get access to some great locations. Now the editing has begun and we will hopefully be able to provide you with some updates and snippets over the coming months before the film will launch later in the year. Stay tuned!

Ballyfermot Play Park

Our full proposal for the Ballyfermot Play Park is now online. We received 2nd place in the open competition, thanks to our collaborators Openfabric, MASER and Ramp-Riders.

A10 Film presented at New Generations Festival

Next to our workshop at New Generations we presented our work including an indepth look at the work in progress behind the scenes of the A10 documentary.

Consultations in Ballyfermot

We spent two fantastic days in Dublin engaging with the locals for the next phase of development for our Play Park design. The meetings were an great learning experience to gain a deeper understanding of the site, its orientation, the prevailing winds, and it’s situation in the wider context of Ballyfermot. Such indepth community meetings are really unique in the competition phase of a project and point to a way forward for how similar competitions could be run and organised. The input we received from all groups has changed our thinking and influenced our design decision making for finalising the plan.

Thanks to the Irish Architecture Foundation for organising the meetings, and the members of Ballyfermot Youth Service & BMX Club and pupils of St. Ultans School for the inspirational and motivating meetings!

828m of White Tape in the Historic Centre of Genoa

Our workshop entitled “It doesn’t take much” at the recent New Generations festival was a great success. The participants took on the task with great enthusiasm and began immediately to find issues to highlight, design proposals to make, artworks to create with the white tape. The results to be found all over the centre of Genoa led to much local debate and garnered coverage in the local press, with some heated discussion on facebook about the interventions. This engagement with the public was one of the primary motivations behind the project – to get the participants out into the streets and actively engage with the city and its citizens.

We learned the ability to draw 1:1 on location is a fantastic design and engagement tool and becomes a beta test of the city for locations and issues where design can intervene.
