For Test Unit 2016 we took a site in Bairds Brae in North Glasgow, an area going through significant change.
Our aims were threefold:
1. To prototype ideas in public space to inform urban development.
2. Build capacity for participants to initiate future grass-roots projects.
3. Place culture, people and education at the heart of an area going through significant change.
Participants divided into 4 groups, each group tackling a different aspect of the site and the city. We then worked in these groups to realise their designs and interventions.
In parallel to the week-long intensive summer school we had an evening events programme that questioned how our cities are designed and developed.
