Please join us for the second workshop in MOV’s Upcycled Urbanism series:
Hallucinating in Public: creating environments that are beautiful and disruptive
2:00PM – 4:00PM
@ MOV (1100 Chestnut St)
Have you ever looked at a space and thought: how did someone come up with that? Hallucinating in Public beings to explore the state of mind a designer, architect, landscape architect, planner or anyone creating a new space must put him/herself into in order to imagine something which doesn’t yet exist.
This workshop will investigate how a beautiful installation can reframe our experience of the city in a way which delightfully disrupts expectations.To do so, we will begin by exploring the state of mind that a creator of space enters into in order to imagine something which doesn’t yet exist. Our team will go into a state of collective hallucination to come up with a project which explores the nature of scale and imagination in the city…something both beautiful, yet provocatively disruptive.
Upcycled Urbanism is a participatory design project that empowers you to reimagine Vancouver’s public spaces. Design and build prototypes in a team environment using modular blocks of polystyrene containing material salvaged from the construction of the Port Mann Bridge. In July, teams will come together to build these creations in a large-scale outdoor event!
Upcycled Urbanism is a partnership between MOV, the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA) at the University of British Columbia, the Vancouver Public Space Network (VPSN), Maker Faire Vancouver, and Spacing Magazine.
With generous support from Mansonville Plastics and the Vancouver Foundation.
