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.
Weinland Park’s Berry Patch encourages the community to pick the fruit and share it with others, but lacks a way to do so.
After iteration, I landed on a fruit stand design where community members can fold paper baskets to hold their berries then share with others.

folding instructions etched in table, true to size of paper
Social influence of neighbors encouraging others to use the fruit stand
