Goal & objective
To reopen Hackney’s small urban parks and make them centres for public life.
First, tear down the walls and fences surrounding the park. Second, bring thresholds and different scales to blur the boundary between public and private. Third, bring programme and activate the frontages.
Working as a framework, the project can be implemented on different sites and adapt to multiple programmes and contexts. This has the potential to bring a completely new perception of what public space is in the UK.
