Interested in exploring how to transform public spaces into pleasant, welcoming and interactive places, contributing on how to up-scale and replicate small scale public spaces improvement initiatives, and shaping the citywide vision for public places? Then join us as we take this conversation a notch higher.

This will be the climax of a Placemaking Design Lab which runs from May 4th-8th. At the Lab, 3 international and local expert teams will be challenged to develop placemaking strategies for 3 public spaces in the following areas: the city centre, a residential neighbourhood – Dandora and an informal settlement – Korogocho.

The Lab is part of the ‘Making Cities Together’ project – a year-long international knowledge exchange & platform about Placemaking & Public Spaces.

1. Introduction by the MCT Project partners
2. Short intervention about Nairobi’s public spaces and the Lab’s contribution
3. Presentation of Placemaking Strategies by the teams
4. Selection of the winning concept

The project is initiated by the International New Town Institute, the International Federation of Housing and Planning and Placemakers in close collaboration with Nairobi City County, UN-Habitat, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, private sector, DASUDA, UoN, TU-K, Kuwa among other local stakeholders.
