Brisbane City Library – Architectural and Interaction Strategies

Brisbane City Library – Architectural and Interaction Strategies | Civic design | Scoop.it

In this project we were challenged to design a library and its programme of services that would be built in a designated site in Brisbane. The site and context for the investigations would be the Howard Smith Wharves site in Brisbane, Australia.

This project provided the opportunity to experience remote design collaboration with the School of Design at the Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering of Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. In this international collaboration project, we were partnering with 3rd year Architecture students from QUT. We were Communicating primarily via electronic networks.

We worked in close collaboration with our QUT partners right from the beginning, to define the desired library programme for everyday scenario. In the latter part of the project during design implementation and visualization, our QUT partners were more concerned with designing the performative qualities of the architectural entities, while we contributed in terms of crafting and communicating the user experience, and designing a system of services and hardware/software products.

Street Vendor Guide

Street Vendor Guide | Civic design | Scoop.it

There are more than 10,000 street vendors in NYC, but selling things from a table or cart isn’t as simple as it seems. Vendors are fined $1000 for small violations, like parking their cart more than 18″ from the curb, and many vendors don’t know their rights when approached by police. The rulebook is intimidating and hard to understand by anyone, let alone someone whose first language isn’t English. As part of CUP’s Making Policy Public series, Candy collaborated with Rosten Woo and John Mangin of the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP), Sean Basinski of The Street Vendor Project, and street vendors around NYC to develop this guide so vendors can understand their rights, avoid fines, and earn an honest living.
