Abstract

Creating and shaping urban green spaces involves a diversity of voices and encompasses a range of priorities and approaches. This chapter presents a case study of a collaborative design process for a small, yet treasured parkland located within a community and transport hub area in Melbourne. The design process centred on a multidisciplinary Placemaking Sandbox Studio, with 18 students from architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning disciplines working in small multidisciplinary teams to develop design options for the park. Students worked with local traders, artists, and community members to research and develop placemaking design interventions. The Sandbox Studio focused on developing students’ placemaking skills in a local design context. We found that communication and in particular listening are key design skills in placemaking approaches.
