Park – a prototype for New Creative Work
In collaboration with Team Wien


How can the transformation of work be used for social coexistence and co-working? This question, or challenge, was the center of the participatory spatial installation of Team Wien in the summer of 2017. The parking lot at the end of the Viennese Naschmarkt was used for this public experiment. Team Wien developed and built a wooden structure and provided a workspace for anyone in Vienna to use. One of the provided infrastructures was a wood-building area which was run as a sudden workshop. The broader idea behind „Park“ was to highlight the potential of a common and non-profit spaces.
