Designing for Public Space Project Report: Prince George

Written by

Designing for Public Space (Jean Chisholm, Charlotte Falk and Laura Kozak) have finalized the phase two report of their research. This phase included the Living Labs-supported participatory workshops and educational programming that took place in February and October 2019 in Prince George, on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh.

Titled Sticks, Ropes, Land, the report considers how the concept of public space is defined and supported by colonial systems, and aims to reconsider this premise through research and design methods that embed approaches of reciprocity, care and responsibility to the land into the design process.
