+SPACE: Pocket Parks

2009-2010 PARTNER: ENLACE CHICAGO

ARCHEWORKS partnered with Enlace in Chicago’s Little Village community for the design and activation of two vacant sites. This initiative sought to engage community residents in a participatory design process resulting in new open gathering spaces that promote sustainable land use, advance community health and well-being, and celebrate the unique character and heritage of Little Village’s Mexican immigrant community. These pocket-parks were part of a broader ARCHEWORKS marketing campaign entitled +Space (Positive Space) promoting new approaches for transforming vacant land in Little Village and across
Chicago.
