How can we re-imagine the role of public space in future cities in terms of inclusion, interaction and civic benefit? This exhibition part of London Design Festival presents the outcomes of our Civic Hack exploring these questions, in partnership with the Northbank BID.

Makerversity’s Civic Hacks address the big social issues of our time. Fostering collaboration between makers and the public, we explore design’s role in creating radical solutions to the problems we face. The Re-Making Place Civic Hack explored the future city via the way we use and design its public spaces. In partnership with the Northbank BID, we drew inspiration from the ongoing project to pedestrianise the Strand-Aldwych area, as a starting point to develop innovative ideas and conversations around the function of public city spaces in London and beyond.

We invited makers across a range of disciplines, from architecture to tech and design, to create new products, systems and design tools which seek to reimagine the function of public space in the city of the future. We now invite all visitors to come discover the outcomes of this Hack and have their say about public space in London. Come vote for their favourite Hack solution – the winning team will go on to develop their proposal in a 6-month residency at Makerversity.

Join us to re-make place!
