This research project focuses on intensifying participatory design as means to stimulate public life in the urban realm. Whilst articulating approaches that overcome the limitations of mainstream stakeholder-led forms of consultation, we explore open-ended and inspirational participatory engagement with particular attention to the role of design as activism. This process of experimentation, situated within the everyday, ordinary life, engages community actors in a socio-spatial co-production process whose impact go beyond the delivery of the project. Situated in the west end of Newcastle Upon Tyne, our case study highlights the transformation of an unused urban space into a lively pocket park.
