Farmlab Public Salon: 3-D, Participatory City Building Workshop
James Rojas, Simon Pashuca & Georgia Sheridan will be leading the city building workshop. Using a medley of recycled materials, participants will be introduced to an innovated way to understand urban design and planning process. Participants will run through an exercise that uses 3-dimentional forms to discuss land use and urban design and planning. Urban design and planning is a multidisciplinary process involving everyone. The model building exercise allows participants to think of their planning goals in physical terms. It also shows participants how difficult it is to build the "ideal city" even when given a clean slate.
