Challenge

Across Puerto Rico, there is a lack of support for the design and materialization of construction projects that contribute to the well-being of the built environment our communities inhabit. Most public projects fail to address and consider the needs of communities resulting in displacement, marginalization, and a lower quality of life.

Solution

The Participatory Design Laboratory seeks to share audiovisual and participatory design tools that allow prototyping, designing, and promoting creative solutions to the diversity of challenges faced by communities in Puerto Rico in terms of construction, structures, public spaces, among others. The purpose of the laboratory is to generate a textual, audiovisual, and design narrative proposal for a community space that can be developed and materialized.

Long-Term Impact

Through The Participatory Design Laboratory we aim to develop long-term solutions to the pressing problems of displacement, gentrification, decaying public and private infrastructure, climate change, environmental racism and colonialism faced historically and to this day.
