What happens when children participate in the design, development and construction of public urban space? What are their dreams and visions for a common space when they are given the chance to imagine, build and express their ideas? What kind of pedagogical and collaborative settings emerge through the act of making? And further, what kind of impact can be gauged in relation to the local context and neighbourhood? This case study unfolds the context-based learning environment of a co-design process through developing a public space with two school classes and local stakeholders. The practice-based research project investigates participatory methods for the development of 'playable' and socially engaging urban spaces and seeks a greater understanding of co-design as an educational approach and design tool and of its relation to urban planning practice.
