In July 2021 we carried out an urban art intervention in the San Donato district of Turin, through an action of tactical urbanism. We colored the pavement of a recently pedestrianized stretch of road with geometric patterns, inspired by the architectural context.
Tactical urbanism does not lead to definitive interventions but to actions to activate the territory. It directs the attention of citizens and administrators to an area, triggering a virtuous process that leads to the design of a space shared with the users.
On 26th November, 2021 we organized, together with Fiab Torino Bike Pride, a calendar of laboratory activities aimed at children and teenagers to raise awareness on the uses of bicycles and a sustainable lifestyle. It was an opportunity for the citizens to reappropriate this new public space in the neighborhood, experimenting with some possible uses.
