“Playful Public Design by Children” Exhibition

“Playful Public Design by Children” is an inclusive design research project co-led by Public Design Lab of the School of Design, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and CreativeKids, a group of art and design studios for children and teenagers in Hong Kong. The research project, started at March 2019, involved kid art educators as facilitators, 1,023 children with their family who applied design thinking in Shing Mun Country Park. In a real-life research setting, they learnt to take a critical look at the relationship among human, animals and nature so as to apply design thinking on the public space, facilities and structures. They attempted to identify and solve problems through creating whimsical treehouses, gazebos, observation towers, playful tools, monkey signage, recycling bins and self-directed design.

The collaboration helps to create an understanding across academics, professionals, designers, architects, educators, parents and anyone interested in public participation in inclusive public design that shapes the environment we all live in.

The creative design proposals with augmented reality by the participating children are exhibited in this event.

「玩樂公共設計」展覽

「玩樂公共設計」是由香港理工大學設計學院公共設計研究室和本地兒童及青年藝術設計教育工作室奇極創作室共同合作的共融設計研究項目。 

該研究項目於2019年3月展開,聯同一群兒童藝術工作者、合共1,023位兒童及其家長,以城門郊野公園為現實生活中的研究環境,學習以批判的角度思考人、動物和大自然的關係,從而應用設計思維看待公共空間、設施及結構。他們通過創造妙想天開的樹屋、涼亭、觀景台、具趣味的工具、給予猴子觀看的指示牌、回收箱和自選設計來識別和解決現時問題。

此次合作有助於讓學者、專業人士、設計師、建築師、教育工作者、家長和任何對公眾空間及公共設計感興趣的人士達成共識,塑造理想的生活環境。

展覽展出是次研究項目各兒童的設計構思,並輔以擴增實境。
