A participatory landscape design
The IFRC reached out to urbz to help turn their plot into a Red Cross Park open to the public. Between September 2022 and February 2023 we interviewed 60 neighbors and resource people; organized 14 park visits; 7 public discussions; 5 exhibitions; and 4 workshops.
The entire process was documented by the urbz Paris team, who developed a website dedicated to the project, produced over 20 videos and wrote over 30 blog posts to make sure everyone within the IFRC community and neighborhood was aware of the process.
In March 2023 we presented our pre-project designs to the IFRC, institutional partners and the neighbors. We are excited to continue working with the IFRC for the next steps - fundraising and implementation!
