Urban Spaces are shaped by different factors; their physical properties, climatic conditions, the surrounding urban context, the positioning of public amenities and its (un)intentional use…
When a public space is not functioning as anticipated it can be revealing to observe it from a different perspective. As an experienced public space consultant and tutor Floor leads (educational) workshops with the objective to expose and explore not only underlying conditions causing problems but also the hidden potential of a given urban space. Combined with an inventarisation of the (dormant) wishes and needs of the client and/or users, insight is gained in how to transform and improve problematic public spaces.
A workshop can include:
– on-site observation and exploration of the given space and its use;
– brainstorm sessions to unearth the dormant needs and wishes, of users and/or clients;
– presentation/report of the results;
– Thanks to an extensive network the possibility to engage experts from related disciplines such as landscape architecture, environmental psychology, mobility, body-urbanism, etc.
