URBAN INSTALLATION 

ACADEMIC PROJECT

5 WEEKS

The goal for this project was to build an urban installation, using the strategies of Nudge theory and concepts of play, in the neighborhood of Weinland Park in Columbus. With restrictions in online learning, due to Covid-19, we were unable to build the actual installation, but made detailed concept renderings and visualizations instead.

IDEATION

Weinland Park’s Berry Patch encourages the  community to pick the fruit and share it with others, but lacks a way to do so.

PROCESS

After iteration, I landed on a fruit stand design where community members can fold paper baskets to hold their berries then share with others.
