BUBBLE x Vancouver Design Week
The Vancouver Bubble project was an opportunity to experiment with the form of urban-scale interventions and learn the opportunities and limitations of public space activation-based engagement in Vancouver context. The Vancouver Bubble used a participatory design process and engaged a large number of volunteers to design and build the intervention, offering unique opportunities for collaboration and new social constellations to be formed. Since the POP! event, organizers and volunteers have re-grouped and produced additional iterations, illustrating that the process of intervention has built a community around itself, and has allowed participants to begin to reclaim their right to the city through grassroots participation, design activism and creating citizen spaces.
