Sparking a culture of entrepreneurship by activating public spaces
This showcase is a great opportunity to not only reimagine the use of the park in a variety of ways but puts Harvey’s legacy into action by bringing people together.
– Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez
Our process helps us understand the community’s needs and how essential it is to activate business corridors and connect people in open, inclusive, and diverse public spaces.
By issuing a problem based request for solution instead of a typical request for proposal, we shift the focus to the problem to be solved instead of the end result or product.
By inviting the community to test and vote on the proposed solutions, we are involving the end users as an essential part of the design process, which ensures success.
This initiative will help foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship by activating public spaces to be more open, diverse, and inclusive.
This initiative is part of our partnership with CityMart and also a Knight Cities Challenge winner.
This co-creation process involves the community, City officials, the Harvey Milk Park Committee, and other project partners to create the most innovative solution possible.
Not only is there space for work and collaboration, but there was an prototype augmented reality to inform users about the legacy of Harvey Milk.
