Tracing Public Spaces

June 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Ana Vargas will be discussing her method “Tracing Public Spaces” and sharing the results of her work in Venezuela, India, and Chile.

Tracing Public Spaces is a new methodology to study, create awareness and inspire future leaders, children, to take action to transform public spaces in high-density informal settlements. It proposes a multi scalar bottom-up analysis, with innovative tools of representation and design to address the challenges of community public spaces.

Ana developed the method ‘Tracing Public Spaces’ during her Master’s thesis at MIT in 2013, with support from the Tata Center for Technology and Design, through fieldwork in India, Venezuela and the USA. The method is based in observation, representation and design using a ‘toolkit’ that enables a two-way learning process between the designer as an ‘outsider’ and children as ‘insiders’.
