Since launching the #whOWNSpace collaboration we have been busy putting a lens to the confusing and often conflicting rules governing public space.
I wanted to highlight our latest effort - a closer look at a network of open spaces in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We are forming a larger group of designers, lawyers and politicians, journalists, and other concerned citizens to argue for a BLACKBELT - a network of open and public spaces for COMMUNITY engagement, organizing, and action. BLACKBELTS are for the active use of the city.
Make sure to check out the time-lapse video below and Join Us in this effort - we will need more collaborators as we plan and execute BLACKBELT actions (add #GRNPNT to your name)
Thoughts on the built environment, design, agency, and activism.
