Project Type: Community / Pro Bono
Client Name: Community Residents / People Make Parks
Location: New York City
Incorporate community input into the $2.2 million redesign of the aging Mathews Palmer Park and Playground.
Park infrastructure needed major improvements, but residents worried a renovation without community involvement wouldn't reflect the neighborhood's diverse character, demographic makeup and needs. We initiated a multi-pronged approach to inform the community, facilitate involvement, influence the redesign and create a sense of ownership among residents.
Cutting-edge technology and a plan to foster creative collaboration.
A story about reclaiming and transforming a community.
