48x48x48: A Collaborative Placemaking Workshop  

Jessica Christiansen-Franks, Managing Principal, CoDesign Studio

Designing schools in collaboration with the school community leads to better outcomes, but effective engagement can be difficult, and may become a time and resource burden on designers.

The ‘48x48x48’ placemaking tool provides an easy and innovative strategy for involving communities in the design process. The tool enables participants to consider short, medium and long term strategies for community-led change. Collaborative placemaking is an ideal technique for the time or resource poor.

This interactive workshop format will give participants:

  • An overview of collaborative placemaking case studies
  • An understanding of the 48x48x48 tool
  • Experience in creative engagement techniques.
