Shared space. You might have heard of it, experienced it, or racked your brains trying to figure out how to get it done. Don’t Panic! In this 90 minute session the basics of shared space as an innovative approach to designing streets and places will be presented and experienced in a hands-on workshop. 

Join Dick van Veen (Mobycon, Delft/Ottawa), Ariana Cancelli and Michelle Senayah (The Laneway Project, Toronto), and Gary Toth (Project for Public Spaces) in the exploration of the basics, the challenges, and the benefits of shared space and the how-to’s of designing for and with local stakeholders. See how this design philosophy started in the Netherlands, but went global soon after. Learn how  to deal with obstacles on the way to a shared space success. And even get creative and try it out some designing for yourself!
