At the Design Studio we design and prototype alternative ways to approach and address complex social problems. We explore unusual solutions, ones that’s very existence help the system see new options for solving stubborn problems. Our upcoming "Making Planning Processes Public" pop-up exhibit is an example of this work.
From April 29th-May 5th, the Design Studio is teaming up with Upham’s Corner Main Street and local artists Philippe Lejeune and Cedric Douglas to host “Making Planning Processes Public,” an exciting, engaging and experiential learning exhibit that exposes and opens the planning processes currently taking place in Upham’s Corner. Local residents, merchants, artists, youth and families are encouraged to come through and play with Lejeune’s magical mirror installations and Douglas’s community embedded art, both of which remind us that we’re all planners in everyday life. In addition, the exhibit will debut “ICUC” an interactive digital visual machine co-designed with MIT to engage residents in imagining their own impact on local planning.
“Making Planning Processes Public”, is open 3-7pm, April 29th-May 5th, at Upham’s Corner Main Street, 545 Columbia Rd, Dorchester, MA 02125.
