Sub Urban: Tools for Equitable

Adaptation Through Participatory Design

Parsons MFAID Thesis. Spring 2021.

This project is routed in the idea that participatory design is a matter of agency and representation. As both a designer and community member, my goal is to facilitate the opportunity for engagement and self determination through a system of dedicated tools and spaces as a way of utilizing design and interiority to enter this urban discourse. 

 

Each piece of this project contributes to creating opportunities for discussion and interaction, whether through having the physical space to meet, the tools to start discussions, resources for learning about our built world and how we got here, or the chance to simply meet our neighbors. Through this, we may begin the process off building more equitable and sustainable suburban spaces.
