ABOUT THE EVENT
The way we move through and navigate around different parts of a city is greatly affected by the design of buildings, spaces and roads. What if reimagining just one small part of a a neighbourhood could radically change how a place looks, functions and feels? What if that transformation were co-designed and co-produced by the people who live, work and play there?
At this two-part event in partnership with Sheffield’s urban room, Live Works, we’ll explore the process, experience and outcomes of co-design and co-production in our city spaces and places.
Afternoon co-design laboratory | 3 – 5.30pm
For our first event of the day, we’ll look at the potential role of the udercroft and space around the Moorfoot building as a point of connection between the North and South of the city of Sheffield. Working as a group, attendees will bring their local knowledge, creativity and energy to develop and share design ideas and co-produce drawings and models to test and share their ideas.
Evening showcase and debate | 6 – 7.30pm
Our evening event will bring together and share the co-designed ideas and co-produced prototypes from the afternoon workshop to consider the specific question of reimagining the area around and underneath the Moorfoot building. We’ll go on to explore the wider question of these processes as a means of improving our cities’ places and spaces.
