Start Park

https://codesigntoscana.org/462-2

Via Quinto Martini 16, Prato, Italy
Start Park was born 2 years ago after a co-design workshop whose output were possible urban-scaled solutions to climate change consequences. Some of the participants decided to carry on as an independent collective the outputs emerged. The group is composed by environmental architects, engineers, innovation experts, anthropologists, designers and contemporary art curators.

Start Park


Co-designing urban parks as outposts for adapting cities to climate change

Start Park


Co-designing urban parks as outposts for adapting cities to climate change
Start Park project wants to address the challenge of the Climate Change (CC) through the build of a resilient community which would be involved in the co-design of a Green-Blue Infrastructure (GBI).

Start Park aims to broaden the role of environmental architecture in re-designing urban parks as outposts for adapting our cities to climate change. Collected through a two-years long research, the insights regarding climate change, urban resilience and active citizenship led our multidisciplinary collective to develop, thanks to co-design methodology and park users engagement, the Start Park concept: a Start Park is an urban green area whose infrastructure and services are dedicated to water reuse, drainage and characterized by experiential sensibilization and learning activities connected to climate change for the local community. Start Parks would be multi-objective, indeed. Beside preserving white and grey waters, it would enhance change thanks to mustisensorialy solutions with an educational aim and would imply the modularization of the vacuum to facilitate the co-design of multiple sustainable users’ colonization activities of the green area.
