Freespace


A 6-month design research project to work with a local, socially driven cause to help them promote and further their message.

Joint project with Irene Chou, Alejandra Valenzuela, Rui Liu, Chell Zhang




What started as a partnership during my MFA degree with freespace and a group of my classmates turned into a project whereby we helped them further their social mission of enabling people to create public and community run share-spaces to teach, share and come together.

We worked with them to transfer the vast knowledge of the founders and members into a toolkit PDF, ‘roadmap’ poster and a wiki so that people around the globe could get access to and open their own spaces.

To date over 14 different freespace inspired spaces have opened across the globe in places such as Tokyo and Paris.
