Dialogue that shapes design
While one aim was to provide an improved home for artists and creative industries, another was to offer valuable public services that anchor the building in community life. Through physical workshops and online initiatives, ideas and wishlists were generated from The GoDown community. This included artists and creative entrepreneurs, as well as school children, local businesses, city representatives and the general public. This process is an ongoing dialogue, so the resultant designs are continually energised, refreshed, and reflected upon.
