+Space: Pocket-Parks

Partner: Enlace Chicago

Between 2009 and 2010, Archeworks partnered with Enlace in Chicago’s Little Village community for the design and activation of two vacant sites.  This initiative sought to engage community residents in a participatory design process resulting in new open gathering spaces that promote sustainable land use, advance community health and well-being, and celebrate the unique character and heritage of Little Village’s Mexican immigrant community. These pocket-parks were part of a broader Archeworks marketing campaign entitled +Space (Positive Space) promoting new approaches for transforming vacant land in Little Village and across Chicago.
